Sunset Residency Program

About us

We are accepting submissions for 4-8 week residencies for our 2019 Social Practice program. Artists submitting proposals for this program are asked to keep in mind the following:

  • Projects must include community activation, participatory making or viewing experiences, and/or social engagement with the local neighborhood.*
  • Residencies must culminate in an exhibition, performance, or community experience
  • Experience will last 2-8 weeks
  • Successful projects balance rigorous critical discourse, genuine social exchange, and artistic experimentation.

*Note that applications engaging with the surrounding neighborhood and/or local community in an exploitative or disingenuous manner will not be accepted.

We will provide:

  • Free shared studio space
  • Limited studio furniture
  • Large exhibition wall
  • Connections with local community members, activists, and galleries
  • Peer-to-peer mentorship as needed
  • WIFI and climate controlled workspace

We’d love to work with you!
