Rockland Residency: Call to Artists
Thank you for your interest in our offerings for your creative time and space!
Rockland is committed to providing opportunity to traditionally marginalized groups in terms of race and sexual orientation. To do this fairly, our Selection Committee will contain BIPOC and LBGTQIA+ representatives. Rockland requests friends and organizations within those communities to post our Call to Artists. Our residency is free to allow greater access. The application fee is modest and used to pay our Selection Committee of artists for their expertise. If anyone feels this is an obstacle to applying for our residency, please email us for a waiver request. During the selection process, we are aware other groups can also be targeted for their age, ability, religion, gender and political beliefs. We strive to assemble a cohort of varied backgrounds and disciplines of art to stimulate an inspiring, sensitive and lively communal experience.
Please note: This is a residency for adults only over 25 years of age. No children, spouses or other family will be present on site during the duration of the residency. We do not allow guests.
Expected Work Samples to be submitted:
Visual artists: upload 10 images or 3 video samples
Writers: upload 5-20 pages from one or more pieces
Musicians: upload up to 3 samples
Collaborative groups of 2-3 can be submitted on one application. Sharing studio and/or accommodations is helpful given our limited accepted number of residents due to space. Please include all applicant names and contact information on the application.
