The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA) is reopening its residency program at Mt. San Angelo in Amherst, Virginia, on July 1, 2021. International programs remain on hold.
Virtual events and initiatives created in response to the pandemic continue with Virtual VCCA.
Since 1971, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA) has provided uninterrupted time and space for artists to produce the finest works of literature, visual art, and music. VCCA hosts over 400 Fellows each year at two locations: Mt. San Angelo in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Amherst, Virginia, and the Moulin à Nef, in Auvillar France.
At VCCA, I had everything I needed. I was completely unhindered. As I said to many other Fellows during my stay, "If you can’t produce here, you can’t produce."
