We are now accepting applications for the 2018/2019 residency season. The Artist Residency program is open to artists in all genres, in any stage of their career. We encourage local, national, and international artists to apply. Click here for more information and to apply.
Residencies at PlatteForum are competitive with over 100 applications and only five slots awarded each year. Each residency gives the artist the time, space and support to extend their work and share their ideas with the public. Artistic excellence, innovative ideas for engagement and collaboration with the public, and a diversity of ideas, genres, and methodologies are paramount in selecting artists for only five available slots in the Artist Residency program each season. Residencies are 6-8 weeks in duration.
The Artist Residency program is open to artists in all genres. Applications from established professional artists, emerging artists, and graduate students are welcome. We encourage local, national, and international artists to apply. Artistic excellence, merit, and creative ways for interacting with youth and the public in issues of social change and justice are important criteria in the selection process. Applicants must be able to speak and understand English. There is a three-year waiting period for former residents (for example, an Artist Resident from the 2012-13 season is not eligible to apply until the 2015-16 season).
