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 School of Art facilities, with 24-hour access to personal studio spaces.

Each resident is 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.

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 additional supply and project funding, and will work directly with Ball State University as a community partner.

Residency + Symposium in Sardinia, Italy, June 2019





For three weeks in June (3-24) a group of artists will populate the quaint streets of Nurri, a village on the beautiful island of Sardinia, Italy. The theme of the residency is Su Bixinau, or The Neighbourhood. We will work in an abandoned convent, full of atmospheric rooms, chapels, a cloister and a secret garden. The exhbition at the end will be held here. Additionally, participating artists are invited to take part in an art festival in San Sperate, celebrating the art of Sardinian sculptor Pinnuccio Sciola. from May 31-June 2, as guests of the town. There will be events organized for the artists for this symposium. Sardinia contains some of Europe's best beaches as well as fascinating archeaological sites. Villages have strong local traditions and embrace a zero kilometre diet. Daytrips to various sites, museums and beaches will be planned according to the group's interests. Although the theme is 'the neighbourhood', the residency is otherwise open and welcomes artists using a range of media. The deadline to apply is February 20.
