  1. The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, an artist-in-residence program located in Nebraska City, is currently accepting applications from writers, composers, visual and interdisciplinary artists for stays during the first half of 2017. We support established and emerging writers, visual artists and composers by providing working and living environments that allow uninterrupted time for work, reflection and creative growth. Our residencies range from 2-8 weeks in length, and each resident is awarded free accommodation, studio space, and a weekly stipend.

    Could you please share this opportunity with your members? Thank you. The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts hosts artists from around the country and across the world. We hope to connect artists from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds in a creative, supportive, and productive working environment.

    Deadlines for applications are September 1 and March 1 each year; applications are accepted through our user-friendly Slideroom portal. You can find information about the residency, application process, and Slideroom access at our website:http://khncenterforthearts.org/residency.php

    We encourage you to share this opportunity with creative professionals in your area!
