The Fall 2020 Residency Term Application is now open, with a deadline of March 1, 2020 at 11:59 PM.

PlySpace is an artist-in-residence program in Muncie, Indiana, that is dedicated to offering visual artists, writers, performers, designers, and other creative individuals time and space to investigate and pursue their own practices. Additionally, it serves as a platform for experimentation and provocation by catalyzing conversation and collaboration with various Muncie communities. PlySpace facilitates opportunities for residents to engage with the public through partnership and programming that is tailored to their area of interest. PlySpace is funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

PlySpace is pleased to support practitioners in a variety of creative fields and facilitate access to a wide range of media-specific equipment and facility accommodations for individuals and teams working in areas including, but not limited, to painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, glass, metals, ceramics, performance, photography, video/film, time-based media, writing, poetry, theatre, non-object based practice, and social practice. All residents will have provisional access to the Ball State University College of Fine Art facilities, with 24-hour access to personal studio spaces.

While exploring their personal creative practice, each resident is also expected to work with a community collaborative partner and complete a community-based project while in residence.  This experience is meant to benefit the resident as well as the community of Muncie. The community project proposal is part of the application process, and projects should take up 5-10 hours of time per week in residence. For detailed information about the community collaboration aspect of the program, 

Selected residents will be offered one of two types of residency: a position as a PlySpace Resident or as a PlySpace Resident Fellow. The type of residency offered will be determined by the Admissions Panel and Final Selection Committee during the admissions process and will be based on the application quality and the proposed length of stay. All residencies include living space, studio space, a $500 travel stipend and a $500 living stipend, paid upon completion of the program. Resident Fellows are eligible for an additional $2000 supply and project funding, and will work directly with Ball State University as a community partner. Please refer to the website for more information about the residency types.

Three individual artists or up to three collective applicants will be accepted for each residency term (one PlySpace Resident Fellow and two PlySpace Residents). Residency terms are a minimum of 4 weeks to a maximum of 12, beginning on September 15th and ending on December 7, 2020. Residents are free to negotiate their length of stay, start dates, and end dates within this block of time. Resident Fellows must plan a stay of no fewer than 9 weeks.

There is no cost for lodging or studio space with the PlySpace Residency Program. Residents are expected to arrange their own travel and provide their own meals, supplies, and other personal expenses. PlySpace will arrange activities, dinners, and other events to complement the resident’s experience.

Country:

Byrdcliffe Artist Residencies offer uninterrupted time and space for creatives in all disciplines. Our serene mountain community is 2.5 hours north of NYC in Woodstock NY with residencies open to individuals, teams, and couples at all stages of their career. Byrdcliffe’s AiR program is particularly beneficial to those who find it restorative to live in a community environment surrounded by natural beauty. Artists are invited to participate in optional programming such as open studios, wellness workshops, studio visits, field trips, and communal dinners, or are free to work in solitude during their entire stay.

5 Month Residents live in one of Byrdcliffe’s eight private cabins as an autonomous live/work space. Each cottage varies in its size and structure and is able to accommodate 1-2 people or couples. Individuals, couples, and collaborative and non-collaborative artist teams are encouraged to apply. Byrdcliffe unfortunately is unable to accommodate children at this time.  See complete cabin listings, including photos and a floorplan.
