PlySpace Residency Summer 2020 Term

Website: https://www.plyspace.org/residency-about

PlySpace is an artist-in-residence program dedicated to offering creative individuals’ time and space to investigate and pursue their own practices. PlySpace welcomes both emerging and established artists and creatives from a variety of disciplines. Applicants should be dedicated practitioners in their field and able to work safely and independently for the entire residency period to which they are assigned. Three to five individual or collective applicants will be accepted for each residency term. Each resident will propose a personal project as well as a project to be completed in partnership with a community collaborator. PlySpace will work with both parties to encourage a successful and fulfilling collaboration. Selected residents will be offered one of two types of residency. The type of residency offered will be determined by the Admissions Panel and Final Selection Committee during the admissions process. All residencies include living space in PlySpace and studio space at Madjax, a center for innovation and design.

  • PlySpace Residents – Resident will be paired with a community collaborator based on their personal and collaborative project proposals and interests. Residents are expected to complete a public talk about their work and complete a project in partnership with their Community Collaborator. They will receive a $500 travel stipend and a $500 food stipend for their residency period, between 4 and 12 weeks.
  • PlySpace Resident Fellows – Resident will be paired with the Ball State University School of Art as their community collaborator. Resident Fellows are expected to conduct multiple public programs connected to their practice through their partnership with the SOA. Resident Fellows will receive a $1500 stipend provided by PlySpace to be used for travel and living expenses and up to $1000 in funding toward their proposed collaborative project and supplies. Resident Fellows must plan a 9 to 12 week residency stay.

Three individual or collective applicants will be accepted for each residency term (one PlySpace Resident Fellow and two PlySpace Residents).

Applicants should not be enrolled in a degree-granting program at the time of application and must be over 21 years of age. If you apply before the last 5 days of application period, your application fee will be $25. If you apply in the last 5 days the application is open, up until the deadline, your application fee will be $40.
