Saltonstall Residency Program (Ithaca, NY) – Call For Artists

Saltonstall Residency Program (Ithaca, NY) – Call For Artists

The Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts announces a call for artists for their 2021 Saltonstall Residency Program in Ithaca, New York. Each year, the Saltonstall Foundation awards free residencies to artists and writers who are residents of New York State and Indian Nations therein. They support artists and writers working in the following disciplines: Poetry; Fiction and Creative Nonfiction; Photography and Filmmaking; and Painting, Sculpture, and Visual Arts.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 23 Jan 2021

All applicants must be at least twenty-one (21) years of age and must be residents of New York State or Indian Nations therein ** (all counties). Residencies are for individual artists and writers. Saltonstall is unable to accommodate groups or pairs of people working together.

New in 2021: Accessibility space for an artist or writer! Saltonstall is currently building an accessible addition. It includes a private accessible living space with a roll-in shower, private accessible studio (for a visual artist or writer), shared accessible kitchen and dining area, accessible laundry facilities, and adjoining private suite for a personal care assistant if needed.

COVID, the unwanted guest

Saltonstall is under no illusions: The coronavirus will be with us — in some way — through next summer. They are planning a 2021 residency season because they believe they can offer a safe residency experience in a way that is responsible and responsive to the needs of artists and writers while protecting their health and that of the staff and local community.

2021 Saltonstall Residency Program Dates

Second annual six-night residency for artist/writer parents:

Thursday, June 3 – Wednesday, June 9. Please note: this residency is strictly for artist/writer parents who have at least one dependent child (under 18) at home.

Four-week residencies:

  • Monday, June 14 – Monday, July 12
  • Monday, July 19 – Monday, August 16
  • Monday, August 23 – Monday, September 20

Two-week residencies:

  • Monday, September 27 – Monday, October 11
  • Saturday, October 16 – Saturday, October 30

Res­i­den­cies pro­vide artists time and pri­vate space to do their work with­out in­ter­rup­tion. Dur­ing one month at Salton­stall, residents are often able to com­plete at least 3-4 months worth of work. The shorter, two-week residencies have an identical effect. There are min­i­mal chores, and re­strict­ed vis­i­tor hours ~ all of which al­lows for max­i­mum focus on the artists work.

There is no cost to attend Saltonstall and no application fee associated with this application. Additionally, to help offset travel to Ithaca and other personal expenses, they have increased their stipends to $750 for each month-long Fellow, $375 for each two-week Fellow, and $200 for each artist/writer attending the six-night residency for parents.

About Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts

Saltonstall is situated in a beautiful and inspiring setting of fields and wood­ed hills, approximately eight miles from downtown Ithaca.

A Saltonstall residency is a small community. They strive to provide a quiet, inviting, respectful, and nurturing community for creative individuals looking for uninterrupted time to focus on their craft. Each residency is comprised of just five individuals: one poet, one writer, one photographer or filmmaker, and two visual artists.

Saltonstall believes in and values a diverse community of creative individuals. To that end, they hope that all artists and writers feel welcome to apply for a residency, regardless of one’s level of education, experience, race, age, sex, religious belief, marital status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or national origin.
