An effective residency program is flexible and collaborative. AIE grant funded residencies start with the school's needs and goals. By outlining a proposal that meets those needs and goals, the school applies for an AIE Grant to help make the proposed residency happen. After a residency grant is approved, the AIE program provides support and assistance to the school to help find a teaching artist that meets their needs. Then the artist, school, and AIE staff plan together for a successful residency. By planning, consulting, and working together, artists, educators, and community members can design a residency that fosters joyful learning and has lasting impact on all participants.
