Harvestworks 2010 Van Lier Residency Deadline Reminder
Deadline: Wednesday, November 2, 2009
Applicants should be young artists (generally – but not necessarily – under 30 years old), working in digital media and the electronic arts, whose work would benefit from significant time in Harvestworks’ studios and from expert engineering assistance. Applicants must reside in New York City.
The fellowships are open to young, post-graduate New York-based artists from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the electronic arts. The one-year residencies help advance Van Lier fellows’ professional development and promote diversity, equity and access in the arts. Van Lier Fellowships are made possible with the generous support of the New York Community Trust’s Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund.
The $10,000 fellowships include a $6000 stipend to cover career development activities, travel and living expenses while in residence. In addition to the stipend, the artists receives access to training, studio space and production facilities at Harvestworks. Van Lier fellows take advantage of Harvestworks’ broad-based education program to acquire new skills and work with our staff of engineers, artists and multimedia designers in creating new compositions. Once completed, the compositions, or digital media works, will be performed as part of Harvestworks’ Listen In concert series and included in our on-line catalogue, and may be included in one of our festival programs.
