Resident Arts was an artist-run nonprofit which operated 2014-2019 and aimed to cultivate aspiring and emerging artists, and engage supporters of the arts to strengthen Mid-MO’s community. Our professional development and skill-building programs empowered and educated to help create and sustain fulfilling careers in the arts. We helped artists create sustainable careers right here in Mid-Missouri by 1) helping local artists professionalize, 2) engaging young people in learning about creative careers, and 3) helping non-artists appreciate and support local art.
