Re: Question about residencies.
I discussed MFAS with somebody who I presumed had an MFA or an MA,
it turned out they did not and they said they were aiming to get artist in residencies as an alternative route.You can also do a paid residency too.
The discussion was regarding expanding ones development and also admittedly making ones resume 'look good' for art galleries where one may be applying with people with the MFAS etc.
Yes I know a resume can only really 'look good' with a good portfolio but things on resumes help too etc etc.
