Calls to Artists

We’re looking for new Artists in Residents!

The City of Pompano Beach’s Bailey Contemporary Arts Center is seeking participants for its Artists in Residence (AiR) Program. As part of this program, eight studios at BaCA are available to individual artists- visual, performative, and theatrical- for a nine-month period from October 1, 2024 - June 30, 2025.

Through this residency, the Cultural Affairs Department strives to cultivate an environment where artists can craft their talents and enhance their experience through artistic development and experimentation. The residency’s structure is therefore left relatively open to cater to individuality, spontaneity and collaboration. BaCA should be considered a safe space where all art forms, intellectual and creative pursuits, methods of artistic investigation, and aesthetic inquiry are accepted, nurtured, and celebrated. A dynamic environment will be created through the AiR Program – one that appeals to onlookers and attracts locals and visitors alike who can watch the creative process unfold and see the latest output.
