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)
