As a creative incubator to explore art and technology, Studio 300 is launching an Artist in Residence program to support local artists. Work on your music, photography, film, podcast, graphic design, writing, maker projects or other digital media in our state-of-the-art digital media studio and Maker Lab while sharing your journey through library-sponsored events, live demonstrations, social media and hands-on experiences.
If selected, you agree to:
Work on your art in Studio 300 at least four hours per week (32 hours minimum). During this time, be available to patrons to discuss your art, process, technique and more. We will provide you with an ideal space in Studio 300 for your creative process.
Lead two workshops
Speak at library and/or community events as needed
Participate in library promotions
Exhibit your work in Studio 300 and/or the library and other platforms
Each Studio 300 Artist in Residence will receive a generous stipend of $1250 to support their endeavors and will be featured in future The Fountain newsletters.
Applications will be reviewed by a library committee based on the following criteria:
Quality, consistency and vision of work submitted
Motivation and potential for meeting goals during residency
The artist’s communication skills, willingness to collaborate, flexibility and focus on the creative process and experience
Degree to which the individual will benefit from the residency
Apply by December 1, 2019 for our April–May or September–October, 2020 residencies. Artists must be Fountaindale Public Library District residents. Applications will be reviewed by a library committee to select the artists for these two inaugural residencies.
