VERMONT STUDIO CENTER
JOHNSON, VERMONT USA.
Four fellowships for exceptional writers and artists based on the merit of their work. Available for a 2-, 3-, or 4-week residency as best meets the needs of the writer or artist.
Our residency program welcomes artists and writers working across all mediums and genres for two, three, and four week sessions. Residents enjoy well-lit, private studios within a short walk to residency housing, dining hall, and local amenities. Studio spaces range from 170 - 300 square feet. Accommodations include a private room and shared common areas. The campus features include a print shop, digital lab, and metal, wood, ceramic facility. Studios are open 24 hours a day.
A VSC residency provides artists and writers the time and space to focus on their creative practice in an inclusive, international community within a small Vermont village. Residents can explore swimming holes, hiking and biking trails, as well as the rural charm of neighboring towns, while expanding their creative potential and building a solid network of friends and mentors.
THE TREILLES FOUNDATION
In January of each year, the jury meets to award the “Residence for photography” prize to support a creative project whose theme is necessarily linked to the Mediterranean world. The prize is awarded to 2 or 3 photographers who share the 8 months of annual residence. The residency cannot be less than 1 month and greater than the duration of the prize awarded by the jury.
It is made up of both an allowance of a monthly amount of €2,650, the duration of which may not exceed the number of months allocated by the jury, and accommodation in residence, in particular to ensure that the tests are carried out on site.
During their stays at Les Treilles, the winners are accommodated in the house of “La Bergerie”. Meals and cleaning are provided by the Foundation, which allows them to devote themselves entirely to the realization of their photographic project.
For the realization of their work, they have on the domain a digital workshop equipped with a professional computer and a large-format giclée pigment printer and a silver laboratory, the “Laboratoire Jacqueline Hyde”, equipped with a multi-format enlarger, which allows those who wish to develop and print black and white images.

SQUEAKY WHEEL RESIDENCY
BUFFALO, NEW YORK USA
Squeaky Wheel’s Workspace Residency is a project-based residency for artists and researchers working in media arts. Offered twice per year, the residency is open to applicants from Buffalo and across the United States who are seeking resources, time, and support for ongoing projects or the creation of new work.
Selected applicants will have tailored access to facilities, equipment, technical consultation, from Squeaky Wheel, as well as our Workspace Residency partners Buffalo Game Space, The Foundry, and Silo City. Residents will also have the opportunity to attend guest lectures, are provided with public opportunities to share and receive feedback for their work, and will be invited to a variety of site visits and activities exploring Buffalo’s unique communities and histories. Squeaky Wheel will assess whether the residency can take place in-person depending on case rates of COVID-19, and will continue to offer a virtual residency option.
GHENT, NEW YORK
Art Omi: Artists invites artists, critics, and curators from around the world - representing a wide diversity of artistic styles and practices - to gather in rural New York to experiment, collaborate, and share ideas. Concentrated time for creative work is balanced with the stimulation of cultural exchange and critical appraisal. Art Omi: Artists Residency nurtures deep creative and professional connections in a vibrant social setting.
Each session, two dozen international artists are invited to the program, along with two critics/curators who participate as Critic Emeritus and Critic/Curator-In-Residence. These two individuals play a pivotal role in the residency as they facilitate discussions, help connect the artists with art world professionals through the Visitors Program, and conduct individual studio visits with the artists in residence throughout the duration of the residency session.
THE CLARK FELLOWSHIPS
Fellowships are awarded every year to established and promising scholars with the aim of fostering a critical commitment to inquiry in the theory, history, and interpretation of art and visual culture. As part of our commitment to cultivating diverse engagements with the visual arts, RAP seeks to elevate constituencies, subjects, and methods that have historically been underrepresented in the discipline. Furthermore, we are particularly committed to supporting scholarship that reveals the systemic inequalities of art history as a discipline and challenges us to address these inequalities as we move forward differently. All fellowships are intended to nurture a variety of disciplinary approaches and support new voices in art history.
NSF: IMMERSIVE MOBILE KONSTHALL
Immersive Mobile Konsthall (iM KONSTHALL) – a project in the making developed by Northern Sustainable Futures (NSF) – is calling for artists working in immersive technology to create new work for a touring mobile gallery.
The work needs to consider the themes of ‘re-start’ and ‘re-adapt’ and be immersive in nature.
At NSF we see ‘re-start’ and ‘re-adapt’ as definitions concerned with how artists approach creating art work for a post Covid reality. Some of the questions we might ask are how might artists address these terms, how might we adapt to this new reality we find ourselves in, how might we work across different disciplines and how do we adapt art works to become more inclusive entities using new technology. iM KONSTHALL avoids geographical boundaries by bringing the gallery to the audience.
