Deadline: 1 Feb 2018

The Art Department aims specifically to award a residency to one individual from each of the four categories: ceramics, photography, printmaking, and social justice. Emmanuel College strives to foster a supportive environment to achieve creative and artistic excellence. The residency plays an important role in advancing the visual arts on the Emmanuel campus. It provides an important educational program on contemporary art accessible to students, staff, and faculty. Residents should be willing to support and interact with each other, students, and faculty.

The Emmanuel College Artist Residency 2018 defines Emmanuel College as a leader in the visual arts. It brings greater visibility to that leadership role beyond the confines of the College.

Emmanuel College Artist Residency 2018 Specifications

  • Artists must not be currently enrolled in any academic program
  • Residency is from mid June to mid August 2018
  • Artists will receive a stipend of $1000 dollars and reimbursement for travel and visa up to an additional $1000
  • Lodging is provided in the college dorms with access to a small kitchen
  • Artists may be invited back for a presentation during the 2018/19 academic year based on teaching needs
  • Residents have access to communal college studio facilities with ample space sharing – ceramics, wood shop, print shop, darkroom, design lab, and drawing studios
  • Artists must devote three hours to Emmanuel’s summer art history course, Contemporary Art and Artistic Practice, discussing their own process

Each artist is provided housing on campus and a stipend between $1000-1500 dollars. This stipend primarily supports transportation costs to arrive on campus, then towards food and materials. With the dedicated time, and support of equipment and studio space at Emmanuel College many artists have spurred their career or honed and advanced a specific work in progress. Each artist has walked away with an accomplishment that could not have happened without the ECAR experience. Spending time in a new city has allowed our artists to make new connections and broaden their opportunities, leading to possible exhibitions and teaching positions in the greater Boston area.
