Practice//Practice is a 4-day residency program consists of a series of workshops and discussions, presentations by participants and faculty, a tour to visit partner arts organizations, hands-on making sessions in AS220’s Industries and, of course, a party!

A final schedule is decided based the goals of each session’s particular cohort.


Registration for Practice//Practice is limited to 20 spaces in order to encourage open and meaningful dialogue among participants. Tuition cost is a sliding scale from $500 to $1000.

“I thought I was getting a regular, schmegular boring professional development workshop, like the many dry presentations and conferences we’ve all been to, but instead, I had the experience of a lifetime. Practice // Practice helped me understand my work more clearly, connected with folx I know consider friends and affirmed my calling as an artist, advocate, and educator. I feel so grateful to have had such a powerful educational, professional and healing experience. Thank you, AS220!” – – Edwige Charlot, printmaker, designer, and Practice // Practice alum (Spring 2018)
