Artists of all backgrounds are welcome to apply for the RAIR Residency Program, located on a recycling and demolition facility in Northeast Philadelphia. It is an opportunity for artists to get involved with recycling in the form of artistic practice that tackles sustainability, material sourcing and waste disposal.
With access to recovered materials, construction equipment, a studio and the entire facility as a project space for experimental work, the artists will have an array of ways to execute their project throughout the residency.
There are two types of residencies available: The Standard Residency lasting 4-6 weeks, 24 hours per week, or the Big Shortie lasting for 2-4 weekends, both between March and November of 2019. The standard program grants full access to the workshop, project space and a private studio with assistance, studio visit by a juror, ‘open studio’ event or onsite exhibition opportunities. The Big Shortie grants partial access to space and equipment, juror studio visit, assistance, open studio events or exhibition opportunities as well.
The Andy Warhol Foundation will offer stipends of $600 for the residents in addition to financial assistance for travel and housing. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and must provide a project proposal and references with the application.
Deadline: Oct. 31, 2018
