RIJKSAKADEMIE RESIDENCY
AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS

The Rijksakademie houses a highly international, multi-disciplinary, experimental and critically engaged artist community.

NORDISKA AKVARELLMUSEET: (The Nordic Watercolour Museum)
SKARHAMN, SWEDEN
DEADLINE: 10/1/23

One of the main goals of The Nordic Watercolour Museum is to promote artistic development to make the museum a space for thoughts and processes. One way of doing this, is by offering artists accommodation in the guest studios next to the museum. The museum wants to contribute to artistic networks, peace of mind, inspiration – for the creation of art. We are curious about the meetings and processes that can occur between the artist, the place, the visitors and the exhibitions.


The Nordic Watercolour Museum's 7-day residence offers artists in all art forms a free stay in one of our guest studios for a week and a travel grant of up to 1000 SEK. Every year, six to eight artists are offered the residency, to be used during spring or autumn.


LIGHTHOUSE WORKS
FISHERS ISLAND, NY
DEADLINE: 10/1/23

Our Fellowship Program supports a diverse range of cultural producers working in the vanguard of their creative fields. Fellowships are six weeks in length, occur year-round and provide fellows with housing, food, studio space, and $1,750 in financial support.

Fellows enjoy a private bedroom and share a kitchen, bathrooms, and living space in a 3-story Victorian house. All dietary needs are accommodated, and on most nights, Lighthouse Works staff cook for and eat dinner with the fellows. Studios are located about 1.5 miles/a 30 minute walk from the fellowship house.

The studio building, “The Annex,” is adjacent to Silver Eel Cove, where the ferry arrives and departs the island. Studios are private, flooded with light, and face the ocean. Additionally, Lighthouse Works maintains a wood and metal fabrication shop, and a kiln.

While in residence, our fellows’ primary obligation is to pursue their work. Still, we ask every fellow to participate in two events—an Artist Talk and Open Studio—which bookend the fellowship. Given the size and intimacy of our program, everyone gets to know each other through our program. Thus the fellowship allows for conversation, critique, and collaboration.



STUDIO TILT (AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON)
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON
DEADLINE: 10/1/23

We invite artists to join us in our conversations on diverse topics such as: the non-neutrality of data, algorithmic bias, digital labor, the invisible infrastructures of data collection, gender and the body, networks, methods, sonic technologies, interpretative nature of data, and earth + space + body. The goal is to create connections (between people, projects, and spaces) and build a vocabulary of commons. We envision projects that explore the creation of artifacts, materials and processes of any medium (multidisciplinary practices encouraged).

The residency is hosted in an academic setting (at University of Washington, Seattle, USA) so there is a possibility to work with students in art and design. The last week will involve public sharing of the project (including a talk). We also plan to exhibit the work (e.g. in a gallery setting or installation) beyond the timeframe of the exhibition.


What we offer:

- Shared studio space

- Access to fabrication equipment

- A small budget for materials

- Exhibition space

Payment and support:

- $3000 honorarium

PENLAND CORE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
PENLAND, NC
10/12/23

The Penland Core Fellowship Program is a two-year work-study fellowship for early career artists looking to expand technical skills and material fluency while working to support the day-to-day operations of a craft school. Artists of all backgrounds who want to advance their educational goals and explore their capacity to contribute to a thriving creative community are encouraged to apply. The goal of the program is to shape the future of contemporary craft by creating opportunity, connection, and immersive education for early career artists who bring a range of perspectives and goals to the school.

Penland core fellows fully engage with Penland by taking several workshops each year in familiar or new media, and performing integral jobs for the school. Penland’s ever-changing learning environment allows core fellows to study with world-class teaching artists from all over the US and abroad; this is a unique opportunity to create an educational path that responds to individual goals. The program can serve as preparation for careers in creative, non-profit, educational, and entrepreneurial sectors. A measure of the program’s success is the number of core fellows who have gone on to make a life in craft. To date over 200 people have participated in the program, and about 80% are practicing artists or professional contributors to the field of craft today.


The work that core fellows do for the school—jobs such as weekend cook, and entertainment coordinator—places them at the heart of Penland’s daily operations and gives them an opportunity to develop leadership skills and connect with artists from all over by working cooperatively towards a common goal. Core fellows are often a bridge between the staff and the studios and serve a unique role in helping others have a meaningful experience at Penland.

Core fellows live and work together and often learn as much from each other as they do from their instructors and mentors. In the process, they have a chance to form close friendships and often become part of each other’s lifelong creative and professional networks.


Core fellows receive a stipend of $500 every two weeks, or $13,000 annually. There is no charge for housing or utilities; meals are provided while the school’s dining hall is open (approximately 8 months of the year). There is no tuition cost for workshops, and core fellows can take up to 7 workshops per year.

BERLIN, GERMANY
DEADLINE: 10/16/23

From spring 2024, Spreepark Art Space will offer a residency programme for interdisciplinary collectives or project-based groups who do not (yet) live and work in Berlin.

Eierhäuschen is located in the middle of a nature reserve and in close proximity to Spreepark - a former amusement park whose long-term transformation into a new public park invites cross-disciplinary reflection and experimentation.

The three-month residency serves to explore in greater depth an individual question developed for this site, which includes new artistic perspectives and insights. The artistic production process should form a connection with the place and its fields of action art - culture - nature. The Spreepark Art Space is dedicated to the artistic use and examination of the public green urban space in Berlin, especially the site of the former Spreepark amusement park. In addition to the classic exhibition formats, the residence is particularly suitable for research projects, temporary artworks in the outdoor space and the diverse range of educational offers and other interactive events on the connection between people and nature, art and the environment, landscape and architecture.


Participating artists are selected by an international board of trustees once a year through an open call. The residency periods in 2024 are: 08 April to 21 June 2024, 01 July to 20 September 2024 and 30 September to 13 December 2024.
