Site 3 coLaboratory Artist in Residence program
When is the residency?
June 1, 2012 to Sept. 1, 2012
Where is the residency?
Site 3 coLaboratory, 718r Ossington Ave, Toronto, ON, Canada.
How To Apply:
Send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59pm on April 30th, 2012:
As your cover letter, introduce yourself and provide a no-more-than 750-word essay on why you want to come work with us. We need to know who you are and what you’ve done and why you think we’re a good fit for you.
Attached to e-mail, submit a project proposal totalling no more than 1000 words and three supporting images that tells us how you intend to use the shop space and the shop equipment.
What You Get:
- Three months access to Site 3 coLaboratory, with key.
- Free access to any normal member workshops hosted in the period, ie: basic equipment training classes. Example: Laser.
- Funding for liquor licence and normal liquor, portable toilet, etc. for display show at end.
What We Need You To Supply:
- You will organize a full display of work produced for a show-off event at the end of your residency; a lightning talks round, a DJ night, something to display the work you’ve done.
- A report of what you’ve done for our website, so we can promote you. And us, of course.
- You will need to be present to participate in events such as the Hackerspaces Art Crawl on the 16th of June.
We are looking for artists and artisans with a view to the future. Preference will be given to those not previously affiliated with Site 3, although of course we would like to see a broad range of response. Preference will be given to interdisciplinary project proposals which incorporate a high level of technical accomplishment with some element which could not be easily achieved without the support of Site 3. We are open to proposals from emerging artists (“The Youngs”), but emerged artists (“The Olds”) are also specifically welcome to apply. There will be no preference given to one material technique over another.
We want to see some amazing things. We think you have some idea of what you want to make. Come make it with us.
