Components of the Artist Residency Proposal Template

Creating the Artist Residency Proposal Template involves assembling several chapters and filling them in with your details. While there's no one-size-fits-all template for every situation, Proposal Kit offers layouts that can be customized using its extensive chapter template library. The Wizard software builds this template for you, customized to your needs. The Wizard software is included in every Proposal Pack and the Proposal Kit Professional. You can customize this list of chapters as needed in the Wizard software, such as adding additional chapters, removing chapters, and changing the order of chapters.

Cover Letter

The Cover Letter serves as the formal introduction to the proposal. It should briefly highlight the purpose of the artist residency proposal, the main goals, and why the funding or approval from the recipient is crucial. This letter sets the stage for the detailed documentation that follows and aims to make a strong first impression.

Title Page

The Title Page acts as the front cover of the proposal, presenting essential information such as the name of the proposal, the organization or individual proposing the artist residency, and the date of submission. This page should be clean, professional, and easy to read.

Table of Contents

The Table of Contents provides a clear layout of the proposal's structure, listing all the chapters and their page numbers. This helps readers easily navigate through the document, ensuring they can quickly find the information they are most interested in.

Executive Summary

The Executive Summary summarizes the main points of the proposal, including the need for the artist residency, the objectives it aims to achieve, and the expected outcomes. This summary is crucial as it is often what decision-makers read first to get an overview of the proposal's intentions.

Needs Assessment

The Needs Assessment details the specific needs that the artist residency program aims to address. This could include the lack of local artistic development opportunities, the benefits of having an artist community, and how the residency would meet these needs.

Goals and Objectives

This section outlines the precise goals and objectives of the artist residency. It defines what the program intends to achieve, such as enhancing artistic creativity, providing professional development for artists, or contributing to the cultural community.

Project Plan

The Project Plan describes how the goals of the residency will be achieved. It includes a timeline, the steps to be followed, the methods used, and the management of the project. This section is critical for showing the feasibility and organization of the program.


The Facilities section provides details about the physical location and amenities of the residency. This could include descriptions of living quarters, studios, exhibition spaces, and other resources that are essential for the artists' work.

Equipment and Materials

This part of the proposal outlines the necessary equipment and materials required for the artists during their residency. It could list items like art supplies, technology, tools, and other resources needed to support the artists' creative processes.


The Budget section offers a detailed breakdown of all expected expenses and income for the residency program. The Proposal Kit software includes a line-item database to help automate and organize this data effectively.

Funding Request

In the Funding Request, the proposal explicitly asks for the necessary funding or resources from the potential funder or sponsor. This section should explain how the funds will be used and the impact of their investment.

About Us

The About Us section introduces the organization or individuals behind the proposal. It provides background information, mission statements, and past achievements that establish credibility and trustworthiness.

Artist Biographies

This section details the profiles of the artists who will be participating in or benefiting from the residency. It highlights their past work, achievements, and how this residency would contribute to their artistic development.


Testimonials include quotes and endorsements from previous participants, collaborators, or respected figures in the arts community. These testimonials help to bolster the proposal's credibility and demonstrate the positive impact of such residency programs.

Back Page

The Back Page serves as the closing sheet of the proposal, typically containing contact information and a polite thank you note. It may also include a call to action, encouraging the proposal reader to proceed with funding or approval.
