Moab Arts Reuse Residency ā€” 2024 Application Open

Associated Residency Program

The Moab Arts Reuse Residency (MARR) program's mission is to challenge the perception of waste culture by providing a unique platform for artists at the intersection of art, community, and waste systems. The Moab area is highly impacted by the tourism industry, and, as a result, waste management. By facilitating artists' direct engagement with the waste stream, MARR encourages resident artists to consider their studio practice through the lens of sustainability and to thoughtfully re-assess their processes of material sourcing and waste disposal.

Through a 4-week residency, the program offers artists studio space, project and community facilitation, a stipend, and access to materials at local waste disposal and recycling sites. As a component of each residency, artists spend time providing opportunities for learning, dialogue, and enrichment within the community.

Housing is provided for visiting artists during the month of August. Residents are housed in private bedrooms with a shared kitchen and bathroom at the Community Rebuilds bunkhouse, a ten minute walk from the art center. The March residency period is for Moab locals (residents of Grand and/or San Juan county) and housing is not provided.

Four artists total will be selected in 2024, two in March (locals) and two in August (visitors).
