The Lighthouse Works (NY), National Call for Applicants, Artists & Writers: The Lighthouse Works’ Fellowship Artist-in-Residence Program, with stipend

The Lighthouse Works (NY), National Call for Applicants, Artists & Writers: The Lighthouse Works’ Fellowship Artist-in-Residence Program, with stipend

Deadline: October 15th, 2017

Sessions*:  Winter, Spring I, Spring II

From their call: The Lighthouse Works’ Fellowship is an artist-in-residence program that strives to support artists and writers working in the vanguard of their creative fields.

The program accepts artists working in a wide range of disciplines, but we are best able to accommodate visual artists and writers. Fellowships are six weeks in length, occur year round and provide fellows with housing, food, studio space, a $250 travel allowance and a $1,500 stipend. Artistic excellence is the primary criteria for acceptance as a Lighthouse Works fellow.

While in residence, our fellows’ primary obligation is to the solitary pursuit of their work but we do ask every fellow to participate in an artist talk on the first weekend of the fellowship and to open their studio for an afternoon at the session’s conclusion.

Our program is unique in its size and intimacy; we award fellowships to 25 artists a year. In a program this small, everyone gets to to know each other. Thus the fellowship, while allowing ample solitude and plenty of unstructured work time, also allows for conversation, critique and collaboration.

*Sessions: Winter – January 23rd to March 6th, 2018
Spring I – March 20th to May 1st, 2018
Spring II – May 15th to June 19th, 2018

A large skylight studio for the exclusive use of the successful candidate is provided to support the artist’s work and to foster a strong on-campus presence. Competitive salary, materials budget, and benefits are provided. One studio course of the artist’s conception and design is to be taught each semester. An artist’s open studio one day each semester and participation in studio thesis critiques are expected, and active engagement with the broader college community is encouraged. In the spring semester, an exhibition of the artist’s work will be mounted in the department’s Eli Marsh Gallery.

About: Founded in 2017, Artist Grant is a new venture that aims to support and fund artists. All too often, society expects artists to work for free when other types of professionals receive fair compensation for their work. Artists deserve fair compensation. To that end, our charitable organization funds the efforts of artists to continue their important work and contributions to society. We provide a modest competitive grant of $500 to one artist every quarter.

We have no sponsors but are a small group of individuals using our own personal wealth, time, energy, and efforts to fulfill Artist Grant’s mission. The team functions as the grant selection jury. We come from different creative backgrounds, so we do not have artistic style or media preferences. We’re interested in and will consider applications from all visual artists.

There are four grant cycles per year. If you are interested in receiving notification of future Artist Grant grant deadlines, please subscribe to our mailing list.

Spokane Interactive Arts (WA), Call for Applicants: Funded Spring Laboratory Residency for Interactive Artists

Deadline: September 15th, 2017

Description of residency program: Laboratory’s mission is to provide practicing interactive artists with the time, space, and freedom to make awesome stuff. So we want to offer you space to live, space to work, tools, mentorship, and connections to make that happen. Plus, a $200 a month stipend if you have the right to work in the USA, so that’s cool. If you’d love to come out and spend some time here between March 1st, 2018 and May 31st, 2018, we’re currently accepting applications for spring 2018 residents and we’d love to get your application.

Duration of residency: 1-3 months

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance: We’re a residency focused on interactive art. That often, but not necessarily, means technology, and to that end, we’ve got a bunch of tech stuff, like Kinects, Arduinos, and so many projectors. We also offer mentorship along those lines, although you should have at least a basic understanding of the technology you plan to use when coming here.

Living and working spaces: You will have a private bedroom in a 2 bedroom apartment. You’ll also have access to studio space on the floor below, that winds up being a mix of shared and private space, depending on how you and your cohort-mates work.

Fees and support: If you have work authorization in the US, you’ll get a $200/month living stipend.

Expectations towards the artist: You will be expected to complete your proposal and show it publicly. We also spend 1 day a week working at a local STEM-focused high school, where we work on our projects and have access to bigger tools like laser cutters and CNC mills. There are usually opportunities to give talks at local universities as well (unpaid, unfortunately)
