Arts Residencies Representation & Professional Support
Fountainhead events have always been welcoming. If you’re an artist, get involved with the community in a variety of ways:
Become a member
Attend their events
Share their residency with your artist friends
Harnessing the power of diversity, Fountainhead is building a global family of artists and appreciators, one personal connection at a time. Their residency program was founded with the goal of creating a welcoming and supportive space for artists. They invite three national/international artists to live and work in Miami each month.
Fountainhead strongly focuses on community building and collaboration, which is evident in the series of events they organize each month. They host artist talks, workshops, lectures, and panel discussions that give people an opportunity to meet artists in person and engage in meaningful conversations.
Stay informed of future opportunities by signing up for their newsletter.

They are the global leader in creating opportunities for artists and arts organizations to find residencies. Their research, services, and projects have evolved over the years to reflect a changing world of professional practice and working across borders.

They provide artists with resources and guidance to support long-term research projects and archival work. Their program welcomes experimental practices in visual arts, cultural theory, performance, filmmaking, and writing. Amant conducts an open call at the end of each calendar year and selects artists for the Fall and Spring residency periods.
