An residency program for Loudoun artists
The Sterling Library offers unique environments for learning
Loudoun's artists are encouraged to apply to the COLLAB Residency Program. Sterling Library is the newest COLLAB residency program, joining existing residencies at Brambleton Library in Ashburn and Rust Library in Leesburg. Residencies are awarded based on the quality of the artists' proposals, and is not limited to visual artists. Performers, writers, musicians, and makers of all types are also encouraged to apply. Cross-media collaborations are welcome.

The guiding principles of COLLAB residencies are focused on process, not product, and encourage willingness to take chances and solve problems. Another key component of the project is community outreach. Artists will be asked to communicate about their projects, emphasizing the overall value of art as a community-builder. Process photos and social media posting are encouraged!
