Veterans Residency Program
Veterans Artist Residency Program
Kala Veterans Artist Residency Program provides artist residencies to local, national, and international Veteran artists. Veteran artists producing innovative work in mediums including printmaking, digital media, installation art, social practice, photography, and book arts are encouraged to apply. In 2023-2024 the Veterans AIR Program was generously supported by the California Arts Council through the Impact Projects grant; one of the six 2023-2024 Fellowship and Special Program Awards was designated for a veteran artist with the support of the National Endowment for the Arts.
Please note we have proposals pending to fund a more extensive Veterans Artist Residency Program. Current programs are listed below.
2023-2024 Veterans AIR Program includes:
Cash Award: $1,000
