Bethany Arts Community: Annual Poetry Residency

Ossining, NY, United States

Bethany Arts Community (BAC) offers residencies to emerging and established artists for the development of both new works and works-in-progress. BAC welcomes artists working across any discipline and medium, including visual artists, sculptors, writers, playwrights, choreographers, musicians, composers, performance artists, filmmakers, and more to our Fall Multidisciplinary Residency. Any and all artistic mediums are encouraged to apply. 

 

Enjoy an environment where artists from different disciplines and walks of life can work in community and near each other, creating opportunities for generative collaboration and cross-pollination.

A unique component of residencies at BAC is Community Programming. As part of a residency, we ask each artist to develop and facilitate a Community Program related to their residency plan. This part of the residency is an opportunity for artists to share with the local community in Ossining and Westchester County, and for the local community to engage with artists through their work.

Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts Artists-in-Residence Program

Gatlinburg, TN, United States

The Arrowmont Artists-in-Residence Program provides early career, self-directed artists time, space and support to experiment and develop a new body of work in a creative supportive community environment of 140 rotating visiting workshop artists/instructors, national and regional media conferences/symposia and hundreds of students. The program encourages early career artists who embrace community and enjoy working in a team environment to apply. Each year, five artists working in different media are selected to participate in the 11-month program, which begins in mid-June and continues through mid-May of the following year. Artists are given a monthly stipend, shared housing with private bedrooms and meals (during workshop sessions), and a private well-lit studio with climate control, a basic worktable, shelving and sink. Professional Development and Health and Wellness funding opportunities are available. Additionally, there are teaching opportunities through Arrowmont's community class and ArtReach programs. At the conclusion of the program, residents exhibit their work collectively in Arrowmont’s main gallery. The successful resident is eager to be involved with Arrowmont’s diverse existing program offerings such as workshops, conferences, events and exhibitions. Candidates who enjoy the team spirit in working with staff, other residents and visiting artists/instructors are encouraged to apply.

The Luminary's Residency Program

St. Louis, MO, United States

The Luminary 2024 Residency Open Call supports creative practitioners who engage with pressing issues of our time. As a residency focusing on process and research, The Luminary will provide individuals, small collectives, and collaborations with the space and time to rest, reflect and relate around a line of inquiry. The intention is that residents can focus on their research process, free of expectation of a final product. The Luminary welcomes national and international applicants of all backgrounds, such as artists, curators, writers, designers, educators, and arts administrators. Non-traditional backgrounds are welcome. 

Resources 

In addition to time and space, each resident receives a weekly stipend for their project and funded travel to The Luminary in St. Louis. The Luminary has a three-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment with a full kitchen, dining area, living room, and free laundry. The apartment is located above the gallery on Cherokee Street, a small business corridor with restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, and bars. Please note that St. Louis is not very accessible by public transportation, so make a plan for your day-to-day travel around the city. 

This residency is largely self-directed and process-based. There is no expectation of a final product or outcome. However, if desired, there is an opportunity to work with The Luminary's team to engage with the St. Louis community through coffee dates, studio visits, small-scale programming, etc.

Grand Canyon Astronomer-in-Residence

Grand Canyon Astronomer-in-Residence

Grand Canyon , AZ, United States

Grand Canyon Conservancy's (GCC) Astronomer-in-Residence program supports astronomers and dark-sky advocates from various disciplines that wish to engage with the night skies of Grand Canyon and build connections with the community by sharing their expertise, instruments, and passion with the park's public.  

Astronomers, both professional and amateur, scientists from ecologists to geologists, dark-sky advocates, educators, writers, and other practitioners with expertise in the night sky are encouraged to apply. We prioritize local Indigenous storytellers who focus on the night sky, and other night sky practitioners from marginalized communities across the United States and beyond.

Selected astronomers live and work at the Grand Canyon South Rim in Arizona for up to six weeks in a private one-bedroom apartment above the historic Verkamp's Visitor Center overlooking the Canyon. In addition to free live/workspace, a modest stipend is offered to offset the costs of travel, food, and supplies. Residents have first-hand access to the natural beauty of Grand Canyon National Park, park leadership, staff expertise, on-site resources, archives, and visitors from around the world.
