GENERAL RESIDENCY PROGRAM, I-Park Foundation, East Haddam, CT

DEADLINE: February 18, 2013

ABOUT:

  • The program is offered free of charge to accepted/invited artists, though there is a $30.00 application fee that helps defray the cost of the jury panels. The only major expense to the participant is for transportation to and from the area (a pickup at the beginning of the session and a drop-off at the end at a Connecticut airport or bus/train station is available).
  • A limited number of travel grants are offered to non-North American artists.
  • The format is self-directed, non- judgmental: you decide what you’re going to work on and when.
  • Residents are provided with a private bedroom, private studio, a meal program as well as shared amenities: artists’ kitchen, Common Area, library, wireless internet.
  • I-Park annually convenes 6 independent, discipline-specific jury panels, the composition of which is substantially changed each year.
  • Application materials are processed through a convenient online submission system.

FIELDS:

  • Music Composition/Sound Sculpture
  • Visual Arts, including sculpture, environmental art, installation, photography
  • Moving Image, including video and film art, new media, documentary, animation, virtual reality, game/interactive art
  • Architecture
  • Creative Writing
  • Landscape/Garden Design

DURATION:

    • The typical residency session has a 4-week duration. The 6-7 artists who make up each session arrive together as a group, share the time and space together and, at the end, leave as a group. The residency season typically runs from May through November.

Application materials become available online in late October or early November for the following year – with a submission deadline in early January.

FEATURES:

  • an enthusiastic, resourceful staff devoted to providing each artist with a productive, gratifying residency experience
  • a quiet, retreat-type environment conducive to the creative process: a diverse, expansive natural landscape; miles of on-site walking trails; prolific vegetable, spice and flower gardens for fresh produce and living color
  • the opportunity to undertake ambitious installations on the grounds – including material, equipment and labor support for approved projects
  • a special focus on ephemeral, site- responsive art in which all the creative fields supported by I-Park are invited to participate – this culminates every other year in a major exhibition of this work
  • an Open Studios event at the end of each residency session to highlight the artists’ work process
  • international component: approximately a third of the artists-in- residence come from outside the U.S.
  • the opportunity to participate in I-Park’s specially-themed inter- disciplinary, collaborative programs and projects
  • a shared workshop space and an abundance of tools, materials and equipment, including an electric kiln, available on request
  • the Junk Trail, a shared resource for recycling the remains of onsite ephemeral installations
  • in the Music Studio: an acoustic piano, several digital keyboards and peripheral devices and software for recording, sequencing and sound manipulation – and a collection of percussion and specialty instruments
  • chef prepared dinners (4 nights per week) that foster artistic, cultural and inter-personal exchanges
  • bonfires by the pond, an outdoor shower (in addition to the real ones), a floating living room and a kissing squirrel

AIR ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE, Kala Art Institute, Berkley

OVERVIEW: Artists working in various printmaking techniques, photo-processes, book arts and digital media including sound/video production can apply to become an Artist-in-Residence at Kala Art Institute. Residency applications are accepted four times per year. Artists who apply for residency should be familiar with at least one of the media offered at Kala. Considerations for acceptance are conceptual creativity and technical knowledge. Kala encourages use of both traditional and new technologies, and their admixture.

ON LOCATION: Resident artists receive 24-hour access to the printmaking workshop and/or electronic media center, individual storage space, possible exposure on Kala’s website and in other exhibitions at Kala or outside exhibition spaces, and participation in a vital, international artistic community. Artists also receive a 20% discount on classes and private tutoring offered by Kala.

Please note that this is a studio residency only; housing is not included. Artists are responsible for finding their own housing.

APPLICATION GUIDELINES: Applications are reviewed four times per year. Artists may apply for 1-, 2-, or 3-month residencies, and must specify the desired residency length in the application. (6-month residencies also exist, but are only available to continuing and returning Artists-in-Residence who have done the 3-month Evaluative Review.)

APPLICATION DEADLINES:
January 31
residencies starting in March, April, May, or June

(Note that there is some overlap of months. This means that artists applying on January 31 would have first dibs on residencies starting in June, but artists applying on April 30 would also be able to start in June if there are spots available.)

SUBMISSION MATERIALS:
Please submit the following by email or mail (to carrie@kala.org)
-application cover sheet (download at our website)
-resumé (include detailed information on your previous experience with the media you wish to use at Kala)

Materials will not be returned.

For more information, e-mail Program Manager Carrie Hott at carrie@kala.org.

IF YOU ARE ACCEPTED TO THE PROGRAM: You will find out if you have been accepted approximately three weeks after the application deadline. Artists who are accepted do an Initial Technical Review with the Studio and/or Electronic Media Center (EMC) Managers. The Managers sometimes require the artist to complete certain classes or technical tutorials before beginning the residency.

If this is the case, the artist is given a list of the classes/tutorials required. At this point the artist may accept or reject the offer of a residency.

If the offer is accepted, the artist completes the required conditions within a reasonable time frame (approximately 2 months), signs the residency contract, and pays a $100 security deposit and the first month’s fee. The Studio and EMC Managers give the artist studio/equipment orientations.

DURING THE RESIDENCY: Residents should feel free to bring up any concerns with any of the staff. If we can’t help with your concern, we will direct you to someone who can.

LEIGTON ARTISTS’ COLONY FOR INDEPENDENT RESIDENCIES, The Banff Center, Banff, Alberta, Canada

PROGRAM DATES: Ongoing

OVERVIEW: These nine unique studios, each designed by a distinguished Canadian architect, are located in a secluded wooded area of The Banff Centre campus. The studios offer a concentrated, retreat environment to professional artists engaged in the creation of new work. Applications are accepted from artists of a variety of disciplines: writers, composers, singer-songwriters, visual artists, screenwriters, playwrights, literary translators, curators, art theorists, and professionals working in theatre, dance and film at the conceptualization or research stage of a project. Acceptance is based on an application/adjudication process.

FACILITIES: Each studio has a private view of the forest and is equipped with:

  • A PC or Macintosh computer with colour printer and internet access. Wireless internet access is also available for those bringing their own computers. Computer preference requests will be taken upon acceptance into the program. Subject to availability.
  • Kitchenette and washroom
  • Comfortable furnishings
  • Phone with voice mail

Three of the studios have pianos, three can accommodate writers, and two are designed with storage, lighting, and flexible space to accommodate visual artists. The studios appeal to a variety of disciplines; some large enough to accommodate collaborative projects.

Artists do not live in their studios. On-site accommodation consists of a private room with bath, telephone, TV, and housekeeping service. Artists have full access to the Paul D. Fleck Library and Archives, Dining Room, café, and fitness and recreation facilities at the Sally Borden Building. Access to technical support, equipment and additional production facilities may be available on a rental basis. Please submit specific requests when you apply.

COMMUNITY & ENVIRONMENT: The Leighton Artists’ Colony is dedicated to providing a solitary retreat environment; however, there is a larger artistic community at The Banff Centre in which Leighton residents are welcome to participate. The Banff Centre also hosts hundreds of concerts, openings, exhibitions, and performances every year.

The Banff Centre and the Leighton Artists’ Colony are located on the side of a mountain and therefore present challenges to people with limited mobility. The Leighton Artists’ Colony is committed to improving accessibility and welcome questions about access or special needs.

FEES:

Application processing fee: $35 – $75
Studio fee per day: $60
Single room per day: $59.30

Shared accommodation may be available upon request.

MEAL PLAN: The flex meal plan is optional for Leighton artists. All studios are equipped with kitchenettes suitable for preparing snacks and light meals. Artists may also purchase individual meals in the dining room on a cash basis. The flex meal plan is a declining balance for use in the Vistas Dining Room, but can be used in the Le Café or the Maclab Bistro. Artists not enrolled in a meal plan can pay cash for meals taken or charge them to their room. Artist rates will be applied. Prices subject to change without notice.

DEPOSIT: A $200 non-refundable deposit is due immediately upon acceptance. Balance of fees due is payable the first business day after arrival. All fees and financial assistance are subject to change without notice.

DISCOUNTS: Studio discounts are available and granted based on financial need. Artists may request a studio discount by including a letter with their application stating financial circumstances. Discounts are not available for meals and accommodation. We also encourage artists to seek financial support from various funding agencies and foundations.

Applicants are also encouraged to approach their local arts councils and agencies for additional financial assistance to offset travel costs.

more information at http://www.banffcentre.ca/programs/program.aspx?id=77&p=fees.

TO APPLY: Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Applicants should ensure their application along with supporting materials are received at minimum six months prior to the preferred residency dates. Applications received with less than six months notice will be accepted provided the necessary support is in place to ensure a successful residency.

Applications must include a project description, résumé, and support material. First time applicants must provide three letters of recommendation and detailed background information. Recommendations are not required of Leighton Artists’ Colony alumni, however, they must complete the application form, and submit a project description and updated resume. A detailed list of required support materials can be found on the application.

ADJUDICATION: Artists with a professional standing in their field and emerging artists of promising talent are encouraged to apply. Acceptance is based on the following criteria: quality of artists work, the artistic merit of the project, and the benefit to be gained by working in a retreat environment. The proposed project must be compatible with the physical space and services available.

Due to the limited number of studios available, artists reapplying within one year of a previous residency will not receive confirmation until six months prior to their selected dates.
