Please email OrionPsychotherapy@gmail.com or text 404-500-6102 if you have any questions or just want to chat. All applications must be in by March 31st at midnight and we will announce the selected resident(s) April 15th, 2019.
We hope to make this easy.
In order to make the residency more sustainable this year we have committed to choose one Atlanta based artist, although it is possible we will choose more if funding presents itself.
We see the definition of “artists” as very broad and encourage those who aren’t traditional artists to apply. We welcome anything from drag to musician among the more traditional art forms. As long as it can be shown in a gallery setting.
Therapy has many ranges of possibility, we hope that you see this as we do. Therapy is often for the everyday individual who wants to push further into their mental health, spirit, and potential. There is no diagnosis needed for this residency, just a being with a creative mind and desire to push themselves in an artistic direction with the therapeutic in mind.
