Members of the organization include a wide variety of facilities that take may take the form of an art colony, an artist-run space, or other regional residency networks.

The network began in 1993 as an organization of volunteers who represent and support the needs of residential arts centers and programs through the dynamic exchange of information in the form of publications and through regional and international face-to-face meetings. Res Artis promotes the understanding of the catalytic role residential arts centers play in the development of Contemporary Arts in all cultures worldwide and across all creative media. The organization has been cited in its work to further the international mobility of artists and the promotion of cultural exchange through art residencies.[1][2]
