Expectations towards the artist
Our independent status allows us to run a unique program which does not hold an expectation for a final product. As we offer artists time and space to explore and create, in return we only request respect for our community and a commitment to their work.
To apply, please thoroughly review the information on our website before filling out and submitting an application via the Apply button on the same page. The application will request an artist statement, description of the artists proposed project and documentation of previous work.
