Equity b [x] Residency Fellow Program
Deadline: May 5th, 2019, Midnight
Final Decision Notification: May 31st, 2019
Residency Duration: July 1st- Dec. 31st, 2019

To further support and enrich our community of artists, New York Artists Equity Association (NYAEA) is pleased to announce our launch of the Equity b{x} Fellow Program! This six-month artist residency was created in partnership with b[x] spaces, which manages three co-working sites for artists, makers, and technologists in the Bushwick and Ridgewood neighborhoods of New York City! Available to both members and non-members, the residency will include a private, fully-funded studio space and project support with visiting studio critiques by prominent individuals in the New York art scene. This residency will culminate with a solo exhibition at NYAEA’s Equity Gallery during the Spring of 2020.  

Applications will be adjudicated by an independent team comprising artists and allied art professionals.  Applicants will be required to submit evidence of an active studio practice along with an exhibition/project proposal outlining the work to be completed while in residence.  

Given the focus on community engagement espoused by both supporting organizations, the recipient is expected to provide two art education offerings suitable to the greater artist and patron community; said offerings may include instruction in art materials and techniques or focus on aspects of professional development such as preparing for a studio visit.

Evidence supporting financial independence and a local area domicile will also be required.
