PlySpace Residency | Call for Fall 2018 Applications, due July 1

PlySpace serves as a platform to connect visiting residents with local organizations in order to facilitate collaborative projects that benefit the citizens of Muncie as well as the program residents.

Muncie, IN - PlySpace is a new artist-in-residence program in Muncie, Indiana, that is dedicated to offering visual artists, writers, performers, designers, and other creative individuals time and space to investigate and pursue their own practices. Additionally, it serves as a platform for experimentation and provocation by catalyzing conversation and collaboration with various Muncie communities. PlySpace facilitates opportunities for residents to engage with the public through partnership and programming that is tailored to their area of interest. The residency is fully funded with a $500 stipend for travel. PlySpace is now accepting applications for the Fall 2018 term, with flexible residency periods from 4-12 weeks beginning in mid-September.

Residents reside at the PlySpace Residence which includes private bedrooms and shared or private bathrooms, as well as communal work/gathering space. Residents also have use of a full shared kitchen but will need to provide their own food and meals. Each resident has 24 hr access to their own studio in the Madjax maker space across the street from PlySpace, and limited access to facilities and equipment at the Ball State University School of Art. The School of Art can accommodate a wide range of artistic practices. Residents will also have the opportunity to connect with the community through public lectures, studio visits, open studio hours, and other events during their stay.

In addition to providing residents with dedicated time and space to investigate and pursue their own practice, PlySpace serves as a platform to connect visiting residents with local organizations in order to facilitate collaborative projects that benefit the citizens of Muncie as well as the program residents. Applicants are asked to propose a personal project as the primary focus of their residency as well as a community project to be completed in partnership with a local non-profit organization or community group. PlySpace will assist each resident in refining their proposed collaboration and connect them with an appropriate community organization.

Interested applicants should visit www.plyspace.org to learn more about the application process, residency structure, and community collaboration requirements.
