Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
We're entering that time of the year where deadlines abound, for residencies, scholarships, graduate school and internships. For those of you no longer in academia, here are a few wonderful opportunities you still have time to apply for.
The Penland Residency: This is a very prestigious, three year commitment. Three years to where you're expected to only focus on your work?! Swoon! But it is highly competitive, as well as a big commitment. You can read more about it here. Deadline, January 15.
The Arrowmont Residency: Shorter than the Penland Residency, and geared toward early career artists. The Arrowmont Residency provides housing, and studio space for 9 months, while you focus on your work. Learn more about it here. Deadline February 1.
"Get Lost, Do Art" Case of the Nomads Residency: This is a great little residency put together by professional Nomad, Casey Sheppard. A much shorter time commitment, only a week, this resident will get to hang out with Casey for a week (and India the Adventure Dog, need I say more?) in Joshua Tree, CA, and experience a completely different way of making art. I think this would be a phenomenal opportunity for anyone who's feeling stuck in their studio practice, or who wants to shake things up. Details here. Deadline January 25.
Haystack Open Studio Residency: Haystack offers a two week, open studio residency, Another great short term, but intensive commitment. Details here. Deadline March 1.
