Artist-in-residence programs exist to invite artists, academicians, and curators to reside within the premises of an institution. Depending on the talent involved, the program may be entitled composer-in-residence or writer-in-residence. Comic artists programs may be called comic artist in residence or comic in residence. (Spelling of each term may include or omit the hyphen.)
Various composer-in-residence programs exist, for example with orchestras and universities. Ensembles may be "ensembles-in-residence", such as Gamelan Pacifica residing in Cornish College of the Arts.
