In partnership between CreateWell and Assets for Artists, which is supported by the Barr Foundation. Please share within your network. Below is some information about the residency:

This residency is exclusively for artists, creatives, and community organizers who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color. We extend special invitations to those who also identify as queer or trans, as a caretaker, and/or as differently abled/disabled (and so will use the term QT/BIPoC to encompass all of these individuals).

Applicants must also be “Massachusetts” based* at the time of application submission and during the residency period. We strongly encourage those who have never attended a residency to apply.

Selected artists-in-residence receive:

· 24-hour access to a private studio space on MASS MoCA’s campus

· A private room in shared housing across the street from the museum in newly renovated apartments

· Up to $1,000 unrestricted stipend for their participation in the program ($500 per 2 week period), as well as a stipend of up to $300 ($150 per 2 week period) for meals and incidentals, and up to $200 for travel support

· Temporary MASS MoCA membership

· Invitation to programming centered around building resiliency, sharing ideas and skills

· Daily group lunch

· Weekly group dinners

Participants may attend the residency for 1–4 week.

Applications close April 12, 2021. More information here.
