Are You Determined?

Looking ahead is part of the work a career artist must accomplish on a regular basis. Looking ahead to new opportunities, to new artistic horizons, to new ways to network and build out skillsets. While this work can feel like something in addition to your regular practice, a distraction, in fact, they are an integral part of your practice. Diligence in this arena is key to a successful career.

Stochastic Labs invites applications for fully sponsored residencies for international artists, engineers, scientists and entrepreneurs.

The Ankhlave Garden Project Fellowship invites artists who are of Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and or POC background based in NYC to submit their work for an open call. In their own words:

Five Fellows will have access to Materials for the Arts to produce a work under the theme (To Be Announced). Each artist will create two works that are in conversation with each other.  The first will be a public artwork presented summer 2022 on the grounds of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and another exhibited in a traditional gallery setting following the public art installations. The Public Art exhibit will be curated by former AnkhLave Garden Project Fellow, and current AnkhLave Curator in Residence, Cecilia Andre.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden will pay an artist honorarium of $1,000 and will reimburse up to $1,000 in expenses (materials, fabrication etc.) One of the five selected artists will receive up to $10,000 for the expenses/fabrication/installation of an original treehouse inspired land inclosure.
