How to Apply for Artist Residencies (and other opportunities to support the making of new work)
Monday, Nov 17, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Doing an artist residency is an excellent way to stimulate new ideas and work, to create space for experiment and risk in your art practice, and to access new networks of art makers and professional development opportunities. Frequently these programs are highly competitive. How do you find the residency experiences that are right for you? How do residencies select artists to work with? And what strategies should you adopt to get into the residency of your choosing?
This workshop will address the nuts and bolts of applying for artist residency programs, from finding residencies that best match your professional and personal interests to preparing application materials that stand out and communicate both what you have to offer and what you stand to gain from these experiences.
Through hands-on exercises you will learn strategies for shaping application content, developing outstanding portfolios and artist statements and selecting references. Whether you are researching these kinds of opportunities, have questions about application processes or are looking for support to make your applications stronger, you will leave this workshop with a new perspective on the process and the skills and strategies to get in to and have a successful residency experience.
Jennie Carlisle is the Production Curator for Elsewhere Museum in Greensboro, NC, where she coordinates a site specific residency program at the museum that supports 50 international artists annually in the production of art projects that mine a collection of popular materials on site from a former thrift store and that engage directly with ideas of process and experimentation, collaboration, and public participation. She also directs public programs and produces exhibitions for the museum that are shaped as events and collaborative experiences. Jennie completed PhD course work in Art History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2011. Her past curatorial projects include contributions to “More Love: Art, Politics and Sharing,” “Counter Lives: Portraiture in Contemporary Art” and “John Wesley’s Boeing in Context” at the Ackland Art Museum.
