2022 Artist Residency Program: Call for Applications – Deadline Extended

Deadline to apply: November 7th, 2021

The Spudnik Press Cooperative Residency Program provides mid-career to established artists two to six weeks of full studio access and the support necessary for the production of new print-based artwork. The Residency Program supports a range of local, regional, and national artists with each residency adapting to the interests and needs of the individual artist.

The Resident Artists contribute an integral role in the Spudnik Press community, bringing new perspectives, experiences and resources as they partake in a variety of public programs and professional opportunities throughout the duration of their residency. These activities vary from one artist to the next and may entail participating in artist talks, private events, critiques, teaching master workshops, or presenting an exhibition.

Where possible, we will make reasonable accommodations for artists with a medical or religious exemption.
