The Luminary's Residency Program

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.

Fee Details

The actual cost of each residency is $5,000 per month, which includes a semi-private studio, private bedroom, full use of our facilities, visiting artist program, studio visits, insurance, and staff support. In an effort to serve and support emerging artists, we attempt to subsidize residencies for all individual artists who do not have other forms of support. Thanks to the generous support of donors and grants, the artist’s contribution for the winter residency program is $900 per a 4-week period.

We also offer need-based financial assistance to artists-in-residence for whom it would be impossible to attend without financial support. Financial need is self-reported by artists in their applications. We ask that artists who are in a position to fully contribute towards the residency fee please do so.

Additional Eligibility Information

PlatteForum is an award-winning and innovative arts, youth development, social justice and artist-in-residence program in Denver, founded in 2002. As a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization, PlatteForum teams youth with professional artists in intensive, structured, and long-term creative learning environments. Resident Artists collaboratively plan, produce, and exhibit a body of work in an environment in which artistic excellence is highly valued along with support from ArtLab Interns. Youth in PlatteForum’s programs delve into a variety of art forms and social justice topics, confronting challenges and obstacles and making life-changing discoveries about who they are, what they are capable of achieving, and where they belong in the world.

As an artist community, PlatteForum supports the creation and presentation of new art and ideas by contemporary artists. By supporting working artists, PlatteForum generates dialogue in the larger community about the role of the artist and social justice in society. Located in a rich urban context, PlatteForum’s dynamic, artist-centered residencies are built upon the notion of engaging the broader community in the creation of new work, where artists, youth, and the public collaborate. Each resident artist becomes a catalyst for innovative and expanded thinking about what art is and can be.

PlatteForum values supporting resident artists in a myriad of ways not limited to: stipend provided in exchange for skills sharing with our ArtLab interns, mental health support through partnerships with local licensed therapists or by reimbursement, mentorship and/or meetings with local arts leaders and curators, guidance towards goals offered from staff, supplies and tools support, as well as exhibition promotion and media support.

Residencies at PlatteForum are competitive with over 100 applications and only four to five slots awarded each year. Each residency gives the artist the time, space and support to extend their work and share their ideas with the public. Artistic excellence, innovative ideas for engagement and collaboration with the public, and a diversity of ideas, genres, social justice topics and methodologies are paramount in selecting artists for only four to five available slots in the Artist Residency program each year. Residencies are typically 6-8 weeks in duration.

The Artist Residency program is open to artists in all genres and disciplines. Applications from established professional artists, emerging artists, and graduate students are welcome. We encourage local, national, and international artists (if local and national COVID and/or public health guidelines permit) to apply. Artistic excellence, merit, and creative ways of interacting with the public are important criteria in the selection process. Former Resident Artists may apply again after a three-year waiting period. (for example, a Resident Artist from the 2019-20 season is not eligible to apply until the 2022-23 season).

PlatteForum is a member of the Alliance of Artist Communities, an international organization that advocates for creative environments that support the work of today’s artists. Community connections nurtured by collaborations and partnerships with organizations, schools, and individuals that extend the artist’s aesthetic are integral to each residency. The PlatteForum approach — teaming Resident Artists with youth and the community — makes a valuable contribution to our community’s cultural discourse, fosters personal growth for the artist, and positively impacts the lives of participating individuals. PlatteForum’s uniqueness gives artists, youth, and community members opportunities that they might not find elsewhere.

Additional Eligibility Information

We use a bi-annual nomination process to reach a diverse pool of candidates from across the U.S. and to focus administrative resources on the program itself. The process begins with an invitation to dozens of nominators (alumni, academics, artists, curators, writers, etc.) to share names of eligible individuals, including visual artists, curators, writers, or other art professionals. Nominees must have a strong work history and be interested in a largely self-directed experience in a secluded setting. Above all, they must be kind and thoughtful of others.

Nominees show their interest by submitting an online application, and selections are made by lottery to ensure that all applications are considered equally. We aim to balance accepted residents with a waitlist in case of cancellations. Residents are given access to a handbook with details of our program and events, including informal studio visits and guided nature explorations.

Mineral School

Mineral, WA, United States

We provide accepted artists with space and time to create new work without the interruptions of normal life and with the bonus of healthy meals. During each residency, we host visiting artist presentations as well as resident "show & tells" -- both are dessert potlucks.

Additional Eligibility Information

We offer residencies for adults 21 and up. We do not exclude people currently enrolled in fine arts higher education (BFA/MFA). Please visit our Submittable page for information about special sessions (Spanish-language specific, parent-specific) and fellowship opportunities for writers and artists from the Pacific Northwest, who are BIPOC, or who are LGBTQ+ visual artists from the Pacific Northwest. We offer a mix of fellowships and low-cost paid residencies; if you apply for a fellowship for which you're eligible, you can elect to also be reviewed for paid residency. (This way, you are juried as narrowly or broadly as you wish within one application fee.)

Our Submittable page with application information is here.

Fee Details

We charge $250 for a one-week residency and $425 for a two-week residency, including all meals and snacks, linens, and programming. We can provide transportation from points along the I-5 corridor (airports, Amtrak, bus stations, towns/addresses) between Portland, OR and Seattle, WA for a $25-30/fee each way.

Grant/Scholarship/Other Funding Support Details

Our fellowships cover the one-week ($250) or two-week ($425) residency fee, including room and board, and include transportation from within the Portland-to-Seattle corridor along I-5 (pickup/drop-off at airports, bus stations, Amtrak, your aunt's house), so the artist pays no fee other than getting to Portland/Western Washington.

We have one fellowship which provides a beefier travel stipend -- from $125 to $400 -- and that is the Erin Donovan Writing Fellowship.

Is your campus wheelchair accessible?
Partially Accessible
Additional Accessibility Information

Depending on an artist's mobility, we are not 100% accessible. The main school building is single story and has a ramp entry as well as disabled parking. The 9-foot wide halls and smooth floors are fine for those with walkers and wheelchairs. Most doors (to your studio room, in and out of the dining room, to and from the deck) are 36 inches wide, but doors into the bathrooms are narrower and not accessible-width for all wheelchairs (travel wheelchairs have worked, and these should be fine for a walker). To shower you will need to be able to step into or otherwise get over the shower pan's raised rim. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have concerns about accessibility; we have hosted residents who have maneuvered easily in travel wheelchairs and with walkers, as well as residents who have brought caregivers who share a room with them (rooms have two queen beds apiece).

How much of the residency experience can artists with limited mobility participate?

Most of residency takes place inside the main school building, so it should be accessible. Everything is on one story, including the common area where residents and visiting artists present.

Please briefly describe the facilities and areas of the campus that are NOT accessible.

The entry doors to the bathrooms in the main school building are narrower ("in" and "out" doors with a column between them). Before a resident who is dependent on a wheelchair comes, we'd like to send dimensions/photos and discuss if we can work for them.

Common/Communal Spaces Information

The dining room and library/presentation room are on the main (single) floor of the building. All furniture is movable, so it is easy for a person using a wheelchair to roll up to a place at the dining table, or to choose a place in the library/common room for presentation nights.
