At its core, Medalta’s residency program is about bringing artists together in an environment that promotes creativity through community. The residency concept creates an opportunity for ceramists – who, for the most part, work individually – to re-enter a community atmosphere and take part in a rejuvenating dialogue, while working with like-minded artists. Our program seeks to benefit artists at all stages of their career, from students, to established artists. Each resident brings a wide variety of technical and aesthetic skills to the experience.

No, this isn’t some kind of Atlas Gym-sponsored weightlifting competition …

If you aren’t able to take a year for a residency and our summer residencies don’t fit your schedule or you have a special project you want to focus son, our Flex Residencies are probably what you’re looking for.

The idea is pretty simple – if you have an idea and simply need the space to create (whether it’s for two months or eleven), apply for a Flex Residency and come create at Medalta.
