BCA Artist Residency

WHAT: Ten-week Artist Residency               
WHERE: Boston Center for the Arts, Boston, US   
WHEN: June 30, 2010 (deadline)
WHO: Artists with an interested in public programs/art

In 2010 and 2011 BCA Artist Residency Program will select three artist residents. The program provides a $1500 award, a ten week studio space, and a studio assistant intern.

The BCA will provide an opportunity for each artist to share their work with a new audience through three workshops and discussions. The artist should be committed to presenting his or her concepts and/or techniques interactively to the group, through activities rather than a traditional “artist’s talk.” The content and format for these activities will be jointly determined by the BCA and the artist, though the artist should apply with a general idea of the concepts and/or techniques he or she would like to explore and what activities might best serve those goals. The BCA will provide the audience and workshop support in the form of strong planning assistance, making curriculum connections, if applicable, and co-presentation, if desired. The workshops may be planned individually or as a set. Depending on the artist proposal selected, the target audience age will range from middle school students to adults. In addition, the residency will begin and end with a reception, open studio or another community event decided by the artist resident and program manager.

Proposals must be received by June 30, 2010. Please send to:
