2023 Poetry Residency at Bethany Arts Community

Call for Poets!

In recognition of the 27th anniversary of National Poetry Month in April 2023, Bethany Arts Community (BAC) in Ossining, NY is offering its third annual residency focused on poetry.

Bethany Arts Community designs its residencies to allow artists an opportunity to enjoy an environment where artists from different disciplines can work near each other, creating opportunities for cross-pollination, collaboration, and connection. Residents will find both solitude and community with a small cohort of other poets and artists sharing the residency.

Open Call for Last Minute Applications

We offer artists a peaceful space to work in solitude or with creative people from other countries, developing and exchanging ideas about contemporary art and culture.

There are a maximum of 5 artists in residency at any given time. The small cohort fosters personal connections. We discuss art and culture over aperitivo and visit art exhibitions in nearby towns. Florence is easily reached by public transport.

Artists work independently on a personal project while sojourning for 7 to 90 days in rural Tuscany.

La Macina operates all year-round, welcoming artists of all ages and nationalities. Resident artists are at various stages in their careers and work in all media.
