About River Valley Ripple Artist Residency Program:
The RVR Artist Residency program will provide a unique, close-to-home opportunity for up to 6 emerging and/or established artists to dedicate time to their practice, connect with a regional network of creative people and programs, and share their work with friends, family, and neighbors in a casual “artist salon” public showcase. Each participating artist will spend 1 to 4 weeks at The YES! House in Granite Falls, MN, where they will be provided with a living space, studio space, a welcome-to-town meal at a local establishment, a downtown walking tour, introductions to other artists, community partners, and local residents, and support in promoting and hosting an ‘artist salon’ public event.
To be considered for the program, artists must reside in the 18 counties of Southwestern Minnesota. (see a map of the region and full call for artists at: https://www.publictransformation.org/rvr). The River Valley Ripple Artist Residency application is open to all artists and all disciplines. In the selection process, priority will be given to Native, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color), and LGBTQ2IA+ artists and culture bearers.
Residencies will be scheduled in collaboration with selected artists between the months of December 2023–May 2024. In addition, each participating artist will receive a $500 weekly stipend to support their cost of living during their residency and up to $150 for supplies and materials.
Application due date: October 8, 2023 at 11:59pm CST.

This RVR Artist Residency is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
