Belonging Institute Artist Residency / Deadline: August 20

Artists or artist collectives are eligible to apply for the Belonging Artist Residency. Residents will receive a $15,000 honorarium, materials and travel budget, and other forms of support.

This Artist-in-Residence program supports one artist or artist collective “to shift the quality of light by which we scrutinize our lives in order to illuminate understandings and practices of belonging.” This AiR is “seeking applications from an artist whose work can offer deep insight into the radical transformation of elements of society towards belonging.”

This residency brings you into connection with a leading social science research Institute and interdisciplinary partners, collaborators and community that hail from sectors as diverse as academia, government, nonprofit, law, the arts, philanthropy, faith-based communities, science, policy advocates, community organizers and interested individuals. Artists will work in close collaboration with the Institute’s Arts and Cultural Strategy Coordinator to develop a work plan, budget and process for documentation of the residency. The artist(s) may work remotely for the bulk of the residency period. The program does not provide living space or studio space.

Through the residency, the artist will have:

  • A platform for sharing completed work through our diverse network 
  • Amplification of the work through our online presence and publications 
  • Support from the Arts & Cultural Strategy coordinator Evan Bissell throughout the process
  • A $15,000 honorarium 
  • Limited materials and travel budget is available based on project concept. 

APPLICATIONS DUE AUG 20th, 11:59pm PST (Application Form)

The period of the residency will be October 1, 2020 – September 31, 2021.
