APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS: Contact information 1–10 work samples CV (3 pages max) 2 references $25 application fee

Number of Participants

We usually have about ten artists in residence at any given time. FAMILY RESIDENCY PROGRAM: The Wassaic Project broadly defines “family” as a group of more than one individual where there is an in-house dependent relationship as a necessary caregiver. The Wassaic Project recognizes that artists who have caregiving relationships, as providers or recipients, often opt-out of peer community building for practical reasons. The Wassaic Project aims to provide accommodations which increase access to our residency program. Examples of caregiving may include, but are not limited to: parent/child (parent is caregiver), child/parent (child is caregiver), partner/partner (where one partner is a supportive caregiver of the other and cohabitation is required for caregiving), a recipient of caregiving, a self-selection into this application for separate and additional housing space by identifying as a family applicant.

Program Description

The Wassaic Project accepts proposals for our 2022/23 Winter Residency program (November 2022 – April 2023). This call is for individual artists, collaborative teams, and groups of 2 or more individual artists, and artists applying through our Family Residency program. The residency fee is $600 per 4 weeks per artist/collab group/artist team/family, which includes: semi-private studio space(s), private room in a shared house (our Family program receives a private house), access to our Wood Shop and kiln, staff support, and programming such as our Visiting Artist program, Artist Talks and Studio Visits, Open Studios, Artist Presentations, etc. The Wassaic Project cultivates and supports community for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers, curators, filmmakers and other creatives. Housed in historic, landmark buildings, the residency program offers ten artists each month the opportunity to live and work in the heart of a rural community.
