AIR NETWORK: AUGUST 2023
BEMIS CENTER RESIDENCE
The Bemis residency is a process-based experience–residents have the ability to research, experiment, and explore free from expectations. Bemis residents enjoy generous sized, private live/work studios and have 24-hour access to extensive installation and production spaces; the Okada Sculpture & Ceramics Facility, a 9,000 square foot industrial workshop used for large-scale sculpture fabrication; and a Sound Studio for rehearsing and recording.
THE FARM MARGARET RIVER
The Farm comprises several studios and a workshop, providing access to both agricultural farming land and natural bushlands. Our farm enjoys rich, mineral-dense soils and is home to diverse flora and fauna. An artesian spring feeds a dam and tributary that flows to the ocean. Waves can be heard crashing along the isolated beaches nearby, and witnessed from walking tracks that wind along coastal cliffs.
Our residency program is an opportunity to experience this place and contribute to our ongoing collective learning. As nature informs our artists, our artists inform us. Together we pursue a deeper understanding of our environment and our role within it.
SARATOGA SPRING, NY
We offer residencies to professional creative artists from all nations and backgrounds working in one or more of the following disciplines: choreography, film, literature, musical composition, painting, performance, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and video.

Residencies last from two weeks to two months and include room, board and a studio. There is no fee to come to Yaddo, and we have access grants to help offset the costs of attending a residency.
“We are open!“Not for business, but for all kinds of artistic practice. From performance to mixed media art, painting, sculpting and urban practice.

Participants will have the possibility to work in Torhaus for two weeks. The space is small but sufficient and will have very basic infrastructure: heating, electricity, toilets, running water, and internet connection.

JAMES CASTLE HOUSE
The James Castle House residency programs are open to emerging and mid-career artists and professionals working in any field. However, due to the property’s limitations and proximity to neighbors, this is not a place that can accommodate loud or especially messy processes.
ARCHIVES OF WOMEN ARTISTS- MARIES - SOLANGE APOLLON PROGRAM
This program is named after Marie-Solanges Apollon, Manuel Mathieu’s grandmother, who was a Black immigrant woman living in Canada and a true potomitan. This polysemous creole term comes from the Haitian Vodou traditions and refers to a person, often a woman, who is the central pillar of their home, family, and community. The eponymous scholarship and residency are an homage to her and to the women whose lives have historically been kept in the shadows.
The Marie-Solanges Apollon program seeks to encourage research that highlights the artistic practices of women in transcultural situations related to the Black Atlantic, according to Paul Gilroy, or to the Global South. Special attention will be given to propositions that focus on artists who have lived with overlapping issues related to migration, métissage, Afro-descendance, Africanness, and/or gender.
Projects that are part of a current re-reading of art history through archival excavation, curatorial, academic, or community-based research will be particularly appreciated.
In the context of this two-part program, AWARE proposes:
– One scholarship of 3,000 euros, distributed over three months,
– One three-month residency at the Villa Vassilieff.

For those of us who thrive in more intimate groups, in quieter settings: small is good. Woodward Residency will never be that huge place with tons of amenities and endless programming. We’re less than that, and yet for the right person, we’re so much more.
S+T+ARTS IN THE CITY
S+T+ARTS in the City launches a new S+T+ARTS residencies programme that aims at enhancing art-driven innovation at local level and human-centered technologies, such as artificial intelligence, robotics, new digital media, smart cities, high performance computing, data science, or biotechnologies, that will be able to put in the market products and services that have a positive ecological, societal, and ethical impact.
Globalisation, demographic change, climate change, secure, sustainable and competitive energy, and social polarisation, in addition to the economic and financial crisis, are the major challenges confronting Europe today, challenges of a medium and long-term perspective. In today’s interconnected and globalised world, multilateral relations are no longer exclusively built on interstate dynamics. Faced with the concomitant forces of globalisation and localisation, many states are either too small or too big to adequately respond to the growing number of global challenges that are now emerging. This is one of the main driving forces for states to build regional integration schemes.

The funding is for nine months with a monthly flat rate of 1,200 euros (gross). A furnished 2-room apartment close to the museum in the former house of Horst Janssen's grandparents, where he spent his childhood, is available free of charge. We look forward to you living in Oldenburg during the scholarship. A research assistant at the Horst Janssen Museum will be happy to support you in your research work.
