Call for Applications: MacDowell Colony winter-spring 2018

MacDowell seeks applications for the winter spring 2018 residency season. Financial aid available.

Description of residency program
The MacDowell Colony provides time, space, and an inspiring environment to artists of exceptional talent.

Duration of residency
2 weeks - 2 months

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
MacDowell encourages applications from artists representing the widest possible range of perspectives and demographics. Our disciplines include: architecture, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, music composition, literature, visual arts, and theatre. The sole criterion for acceptance is artistic excellence. Artists are not expected to give a talk, exhibition or workshop. However, there are opportunities for artists to share their work with others in residence. 

Accommodation and studio/ workspace
A MacDowell Fellowship consists of exclusive use of a studio, accommodations, and three prepared meals a day for two weeks to two months. Studios are private. Assignments are based on the needs of the individual artist assigned to the studio. For those studios that are not considered live-in, a private bedroom is assigned in a separate dormintory. Dorm rooms have shared bathrooms.

Fees and support
There is a $30 US non-refundable application fee. There are no residency fees. Artists are responsible for materials and travel expenses: financial assistance is available to artists in residence based on need.

Expectations towards the artist
Artists are not expected to give a talk, exhibition or workshop. However, there are opportunities for artists to share their work with others in residence. 

Application information
There are three residency seasons each year with a corresponding deadline. The application is online and can be found on our website: www.macdowellcolony.org
