The Watermill Center is a laboratory for the arts and humanities that provides its global community the time, space and freedom to create and inspire, and the institution is currently accepting applications for the 2019 Watermill Center Artist Residency Program. Each year, collectives and individual artists in visual and performing arts, literature and research take up residence at The Center, located near the Hamptons on Long Island, New York, to live and develop works that critically investigate, challenge and extend the existing norms of artistic practice.
Artists-in-residence share their creative process with the community through open rehearsals, workshops and artist talks and also receive access to an extensive collection of resources central to Watermill including 20,000 square feet of rehearsal/design spaces and outdoor stages, a theater production archive, The Watermill Center Study Library, The Watermill Center Collection, and The Center’s eight-and-a-half acre landscaped grounds and sculpture gardens. The Watermill Center provides local transportation, housing and workspace, although residents are responsible for the majority of living expenses, such as food and travel to and from Watermill. Watermill will, however, provide a modest reimbursement to offset some expenses. The Watermill Center’s Artist Residency Program began in 2006, when The Center officially opened as a year-round facility. To date, they have hosted over 170 residencies featuring artists from more than 65 nations.
