Residency Supporting Diversity in Photography
The Center for Photography at Woodstock / Deadline: 02/15/19
CPW's photography-based Artist-In-Residence Program was created to expand the dialogue around diversity, race, identity and social justice, and to provide concrete opportunities for US-based artists, scholars and curators of color, who have often been under-represented in general programs. Artists-in-Residence (AIRs) are given access to facilities and financial, critical, and technical support. The drive for this program is to free the artist from the busy routines and demands of everyday life – and to provide a sanctuary for creativity.
Deadline: January 17, 2019
Applications to the 2019 Artist-in-Residence Program are now accepted via submittable.com: cpw.buzz/submitAIR19

WOODSTOCK AIR is open to all US-based artists and critics/scholars/curators working in photography or related media, whose work critically engages issues of diversity, race, identity and beyond. Special consideration will be given to artists or writers of color, who have statistically often been marginalized from these opportunities. Former WOODSTOCK AIR participants and individuals who will still be students in 2018 may not apply. Residents have no obligations or duties during their residency. Their time is their own, and may be used in whatever way is most advantageous to their goals. Residents are required to contribute a finished work, as selected by the artist and CPW director, to CPW's Permanent Print Collection.
Woodstock AIR 2019 opens for submissions on December 7, 2018 at cpw.buzz/submitAIR19. The deadline is January 17, 2019 at 5PM EST.
