Call for Applications - PlySpace Artist Residency - Muncie, Indiana





The Spring 2022 Residency Term Application is now open, with a deadline of July 1, 2021 at 11:59 PM. All applications are submitted through

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. We encourage applications from disciplines 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, though some residents wish to focus on their community project while in residence. For detailed information about the community collaboration aspect of the program, please see the website (

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 $1000 living and travel stipend. 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.

PlySpace can accommodate 3-5 artists per term. Residency terms are a minimum of 4 weeks to a maximum of 12, beginning on February 1 and ending on May 1, 2022. 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.
