AIR NETWORK: JULY 2023
LIGHT WORK AIR PROGRAM
Light Work invites between twelve and fifteen artists to Syracuse to devote one month to creative projects every year. Over 400 artists have participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program, and many of them have gone on to achieve international acclaim.
The residency includes a $5,000 stipend, a furnished artist apartment, 24-hour access to our state-of-the-art facilities, and generous staff support. Work by each Artist-in-Residence is published in a special edition of Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual, along with an essay commissioned by Light Work.

CENTER FOR CONTEMPORARY PRINTMAKING
The Artist-in-Residence Program (AIR) at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking takes place in the recently remodeled Helen Frankenthaler Printmaking Cottage. Within this space artists have the opportunity to produce a body of work in a supportive atmosphere for creative growth and development —using traditional as well as innovative printmaking techniques. The intention of the residency is to offer artists uninterrupted time and privacy 24/7 in a well-equipped studio with onsite living accommodations. This residency has proven to be an ideal opportunity for experimentation and collaboration. Artists can add to their work practice, explore new mediums, create an edition, or otherwise advance their printmaking skills. CCP strives to advance outcomes from the residency that stimulate original and inventive work that the artist might not otherwise have attempted absent these amenities.
NIELS BOHR INSTITUTE - ARTS AND SCIENCE RESIDENCY
Art and science are different ways of expressing our human curiosity and our will to understand the cosmos. This often means dealing with the unknown. The Strong team at the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI) is a research group working on gravity, black holes and gravitational waves. For details, please see our website: https://strong-gr.com/
We invite proposals for artist residencies of up to 3 months, involving the science of the Strong group. We value original and exciting proposals. Projects can take various forms such as literary works, performances, art works or installations exploring the field of black holes, gravitational waves and the notion of time.
The Sustainability Labs program focuses on embracing artists’ multiplicities and de-siloing modes of storytelling to provide greater opportunity and access.

IDENSITAT ID - TRANSVERSAL AESTHETICS
Transversal Aesthetics is an Idensitat project taking place in a number of Spanish locations, and within the Valencian Region, thanks to the collaboration of the Consorci de Museus de la Comunitat Valenciana. Transversal Aesthetics aims to realise projects involving research, mediation and artistic production connecting themes with local contexts, and so activating a variety of social spaces through the transversality of artistic practices. There have been three previous editions since 2018, each dealing with a specific theme (Ecosystems of leisure, Ecosystems of Fiction and Community~Immunity), all of which used a methodology based upon connections between individuals such as artists, agents involved in other social activities, and agents working in the cultural, educational or institutional fields. Transversal Aesthetics made use of a variety of formats, seeking new ways of understanding production based upon residencies in local contexts. For this fourth edition, working processes will be developed around the concepts of silenced ~ reactivated.

VILLA SAINT LOUIS NDAR
The Villa Saint-Louis Ndar residency program is aimed at researchers, thinkers, writers and artists from France, Africa and the French-speaking world, both experienced and recently graduated from training schools. This desire to diversify the levels of practice stems from the observation that very few residences to date open their doors to young graduates and young creators. Applications can be submitted over a period of one and a half months. All will then be studied and will be the subject of a selection.
Anchored in a territory of rare cultural and historical density, the Villa is a laboratory of interculturality, which promotes dialogue between local and international creators. The residences of the Villa Saint-Louis Ndar are backed by essentially local, regional and sub-regional concerns, and therefore offer all artists and researchers working in connection with them a privileged space for expression on Sahelian issues. including the Sahel region and the Senegal River valley.

the role of artists in school
ways in which we can meaningfully involve people who are not normally involved in shaping culture to do so

However, our highest priority is to hear from applicants who come from structurally underserved communities across race, class, gender and accessibility. We especially encourage applications from people from Black and Global Majority communities. The residencies are part of Reclaim Islington: Cubitt’s two-year programme which aims to transform the way we work with the communities of Islington by supporting groups with lived experience of exclusion to collectively explore their narratives, stories, and shared histories. As part of this programme, we want to support artists to actively participate in producing and sharing practice which can be shared more widely.
