Residency Rising: Climate in Crisis Funded Residencies
International Deadline: March 10, 2022 – A Studio in the Woods invite artists to face the severity of the climate crisis and be agents of change to guide our collective understanding, response, and vision as we shape our shared future. We look to artists to ignite our imaginations, illuminate our challenges, and offer new ways to examine the world.
Rising Residencies will provide artists with time, space, scholarship and staff support to foster critical thinking and creation of new works.
Residencies are 6 weeks and will take place between September 2022 and May 2023. Flexibility in your dates is appreciated as we try to accommodate everyone’s schedules. You may come over six consecutive weeks or come twice for three-week sessions.
Local, national, and international visual, musician/composing, performance, literary, new media, and interdisciplinary artists are eligible to apply. Both established and emerging artists may apply, but a dedicated practice and demonstrated commitment to public engagement are expected. Artists of color are encouraged to apply and we are particularly interested in receiving applications from Indigenous artists. Students enrolled in full time degree-seeking programs are not eligible. Collaborative teams of up to two artists can be in residence, please see our FAQ for more information on how to apply as a collaborative team.
Recipients will be provided $3000 as a stipend and $2000 towards materials. Artists will also have the opportunity to work with an external evaluator/ally. Depending on the needs of the project, we may be able to assist artists in accessing Tulane University faculty consultants or research collections. We provide full room and board including food, utilities for living and studio space to selected residents. Residents are expected to cover personal living expenses, additional materials and supplies, and any other expenses relating to the cost of producing work incurred while in the program. Travel and shipping expenses to and from A Studio in the Woods for the residency are also the responsibility of the artist.
