Socially Distant Art: Call for Residents

Socially Distant Art (SDA) is a digitally-based, grassroots arts residency program with a focus on cultivating accessibility and inclusivity in our residents’ creative and organizational practices. We are shaping our program with an intersectional approach to accessibility, building our work upon innovations within mutual aid movements and the Disability Activism community.

Applications are open to national and international creatives of all experience levels and disciplines, including (but not limited to) visual artists, sound/audio artists, performers, composers, choreographers, writers, filmmakers, arts administrators, cultural leaders, and creative producers. We want applicants who have a sincere commitment to creating a more accessible and inclusive arts world and are interested in developing and participating in a new, digitally-based arts community.

– Type of Opportunity: Fully online art residency with both synchronous and asynchronous content
– Length of Program: Our program is designed for a 12-month workshop cycle for each incoming cohort, and residents can continue with the larger community beyond the initial year, if desired. Residents also have the flexibility to take a hiatus at any point, if needed.
– Hours per week of engagement: Our residency is a self-paced and flexible program, structured around workshops, community gatherings, collaborative projects, and digital exhibitions that can be engaged synchronously or asynchronously.
