Call for Applications: 2021 Artist Residency ProgramFellowship 29.03.2020
The Watermill Center’s Artist Residency Program began in 2006, when The Center officially opened as a year-round facility. Each year collectives and individual artists take up residence at The Center to live and develop works that critically investigate, challenge and extend the existing norms of artistic practice. Artists-in-Residence share their creative process with the community through open rehearsals, workshops and artist talks. Artists-in-Residence receive access to an extensive collection of resources central to the Watermill experience: 20,000 square feet of rehearsal/design spaces and outdoor stages; a theater production archive; The Watermill Center Study Library; The Watermill Center Collection; and The Center’s eight-and-a-half acre landscaped grounds and sculpture gardens. Applications are reviewed by a distinguished international selection committee composed of artists, academics, and cultural leaders across all disciplines. To date, we have hosted over 170 residencies featuring artists from more than 65 nations.
