 Looking for an artist residency opportunity?

Do you need time away from distractions to finish a project? Or maybe space to rest and reflect about your creative practice? Have you been wanting to apply to a residency but haven’t found the time or resources to do it? What prevents you and other artists and other creatives of color from getting into residencies?

For people of color, the ability to navigate the world as an artist or creative can be even more challenging due to institutional barriers and lack of visibility, resources, or recognition of the work as valuable. Here is a chance to learn from other artists of color about Caldera’s Artists in Residence (AiR) program and more!

This event, organized by artists, cultural organizers, and previous Caldera residents, Luann Algoso and Patricia Vazquez, will explore what it means for people of color to take up space at artist residencies. We will hear from a panel of previous Caldera residents about their experiences going through the application process, how they spent their time during residency, and what the benefits and challenges were to attending residency. After the panel discussion, we will lead a workshop to share tips and suggestions to best prepare your application to Caldera and other artist residencies.

Artists, activists, musicians, writers, designers, scientists, and all creatives are welcome!
