The Wassaic Project accepts 1 – 6 month proposals for our Winter Residency program (November 2020 – April 2021). The Wassaic Project cultivates and supports community for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers, curators, filmmakers and other creatives. Residents are selected by a review committee composed of the Wassaic Project Co-Directors, Residency Director, and professionals in the field. They will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.

Number of Participants

Housed in historic, landmark buildings, the residency program offers approximately ten artists each month the opportunity to live and work in the heart of a rural community. The Wassaic Residency 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 community-based arts organization.
