Philadelphia Photo Arts Center Artist in Residence

Artist in Residence
Deadline: April 22

Philadelphia Photo Arts Center
Philadelphia, PA

The intentions of the program are to assist talented, self-directed and committed artists in the creation of work by providing necessary financial support, access to high-end facilities and proper technical assistance and education. Our hope is to create a transformative experience that enriches the individual artist and the community of PPAC.

Artists should propose projects that benefit from the dialogue and education that will take place in PPAC’s Artist Lab and the month-long residency should be used to advance your artistic practice in a meaningful way. Artists may submit proposals that include the continuation or completion of work already in process, or the creation of new work.

Accepted artists will be required to work collaboratively with PPAC to design two public program events. These programs are open to interpretation and have no bearing on final selections. Please do not include proposals for these events in your application.

The length of each individual residency is restricted to a month, but the timing is flexible. Artists should propose a project that fits within the residency term of June 1, 2018 to May 1, 2019.

Our Artist Residency program is intended to support working artists, students are not eligible to apply.

Accepted artists will receive a $3,000 honorarium, will have printer and scanner hourly rental fees waived and will receive a $1,500 credit to be applied to ink usage fees and paper in the Artist Lab. If necessary, a $1,000 stipend will be provided for travel and/or housing.

Fees: $25
