Applications are now being accepted for Guild House's 2018 Artist-in-Residency program hosted by Guild Hall in East Hampton, NY. The program is open to early career artists in the visual, literary and performing arts who are 21 years or older. Four artists will be selected by a committee. For 2018, the program has expanded to offer two four-week residencies: one in spring and the other in fall.
Applications will be accepted through November 10, 2017 for both sessions. Awarded residencies will be announced on December 1, 2017. Application is by online only.
Guild House is not studio-based. Instead, the residency provides the time and space for reflection and the development of supportive and collaborative relationships. The program includes weekly Salon Dinners for artists-in-residence with both artists of note and community leaders invited for discussions. Residents have the opportunity to stage temporary exhibitions, installations, performance and creative projects at Guild House to reflect on their art during their residency. Residents will have the opportunity to present and discuss their work in Guild Hall’s John Drew Theater at the conclusion of the residency.
The spring session runs from April 2 to 30, 2017 and the fall session is October 22 to November 19, 2017. For details and to apply, click https://guildhall.slideroom.com
