■ Eligibility: Bemis artist-in-residence opportunities are open to national and international artists 21 years of age and older who show a strong professional working history. A variety of disciplines are accepted including, but not limited to, visual arts, media/ new genre, performance, architecture, film/ video, interdisciplinary arts, sound art and music composition, and choreography. Bemis residency alumni may re-apply after a five-year hiatus from the program. To be eligible, artists may not be enrolled in an academic program during their residency. Small collaborative groups are eligible to apply, however, the Bemis Center is only able to accommodate two members of a collaborative group to live on-site and participate in the residency. Selected artists must attend a minimum of eight consecutive weeks to receive the award.
■ Funding: U.S.-based artists-in-residence receive a $1,000 USD monthly stipend and an additional $750 USD travel stipend. Due to the limitations of B2 visas (touring/visiting), international artists-in-residence are eligible to receive reimbursement of qualified expenses, such as airfare, ground transportation and meals.
■ Deadline: Aug. 16, 2021
