Wassaic Project 2023-24 Winter Residency Program
The Wassaic Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, uses art and arts education to foster positive social change. We nurture connections between our artists and our neighbors facilitating a mutual broadening of perspectives and respect across economic and cultural boundaries. Partnerships between artists and our community improve the reach and quality of our work and inspire new ways of looking at art and the world. We strive to be actively anti-racist and consider this stance in all programmatic, curatorial, and management decisions.
Wassaic Project 2023-24 Winter Residency Program Open Call
The Wassaic Project accepts proposals for our 2023-24 Winter Residency program (November 2023 – March 2024). This call is for individual artists, collaborative teams, groups of two or more individual artists, and artists applying through our Family Residency program. The residency fee is $600 per month artist/collab group/artist team/family, which includes: semi-private studio space(s), private room in a shared house (our Family program receives a private house), access to our wood shop and kiln, staff support, and programming such as our Visiting Artist program, Artist Talks and Studio Visits, open studios, artist presentations, etc. The Wassaic Project cultivates and supports community for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers, curators, filmmakers and other creatives. Housed in historic, landmark buildings, the residency program offers ten artists each month the opportunity to live and work in the heart of a rural community. The Wassaic Project seeks artists working in a diverse range of media who want to produce, explore, challenge, and expand on their current art-making practices, while participating in a community-based arts organization.
FAMILY RESIDENCY PROGRAM: The Wassaic Project broadly defines “family” as a group of more than one individual where there is an in-house dependent relationship as a necessary caregiver. The Wassaic Project recognizes that artists who have caregiving relationships, as providers or recipients, often opt-out of peer community building for practical reasons. The Wassaic Project aims to provide accommodations which increase access to the our residency program. Examples of caregiving may include, but are not limited to: parent/child (parent is caregiver), child/parent (child is caregiver), partner/partner (where one partner is a supportive caregiver of the other and cohabitation is required for caregiving), a recipient of caregiving, a self-selection into this application for separate and additional housing space by identifying as a family applicant. Residents are selected by a review committee composed of the Wassaic Project Co-Directors, Director of Artistic Programming, and professionals in the field. Residents will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.
