What Makes this event different?

Please check our website www.wassaicproject.org for all information!

The Wassaic Project accepts 1 – 4 month proposals for our Winter Residency program: November 2019 - March 2020. 

The Wassaic Project cultivates and supports community for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers and other creatives. Housed in historic, landmark buildings, the residency program offers nine 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 grass roots, community-based arts organization.

STUDIOS + FACILITIES:
Residents work out of 80–100 square foot studios in converted 19th-century hotel rooms. It’s a cozier space, but one with plenty of room to experiment: residents are free to undertake large-scale projects throughout the non-winterized mill spaces. While our print shop closes for the winter, residents have 24-hour access to their studios, our wood shop, and our ceramics studio.

PROGRAMMING

Two to three times per month, creative professionals will visit to give public lectures and make one-on-one studio visits with creative professionals our residents. Our embedded critics, Adam Eckstrom and Lauren Was (of Ghost of a Dream), will lead group studio visits.

All artists are also invited to participate in a monthly evening of artist’s talks and presentations, and are encouraged to be available on the last Saturday of every month to participate in our Open Studios program.

FEES & FELLOWSHIPS:

The value of the Winter Residency is $1500 per month — which includes studio space, housing, and extensive programming, performance, and exhibition opportunities. But thanks to continued support from our donors and granting organizations, all residencies are offered at $700 per month.

We are, however, able to offer up to $300 in need-based (as self-reported in their applications) financial assistance to residents for whom it would be impossible to attend without financial support. Our intention is for financial assistance to be given to artists for whom it would be impossible to attend without financial support. If that is not the case for you. Financial assistance is provided to reduce financial hardship; our allocation is not based on merit.

Accepted artists will pay their first month’s residency fee + $100 security deposit upon signing their artist contract. Subsequent fees are due at the first of each month. There are no refunds.

REVIEW PROCESS

Residents are selected by a review committee composed of the Wassaic Project Co-Directors, Residency Director, and professionals in their field. Artists and writers will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.
