Free Artist Residency in Minneapolis at MakeRoom

Posted by

Deadline: November 15th, 2019

The MakeRoom Artist Residency offers artists/makers/creators time and place. Think of it as the opportunity to take a break and focus, to work and rest, to create and inspire – for free.

Deadline: November 15th, 2019

Individuals or collaborating pairs of artists/makers/creators working in 2-D mediums, performance and words, who live and work outside of the Twin Cities area of Minnesota are welcome to apply for a no-cost, 10-day residency. Individual artists or pairs of collaborating artists will be chosen.

Who should apply? Authors and illustrators, poets, painters, do-ers, dreamers, photographers and models, graphic designers, film makers, drawers, doodlers and more. Have a creative combination we don’t know about, we’d love to hear about it.

The MakeRoom Artist(s) Residency offers free:

  • lodging
  • a welcome dinner
  • light daily breakfast
  • a presentation reception in your honor
  • the opportunity for an artist or a pair of collaborators to focus on their work, gain inspiration, dive deep, experience something new or simply relax without many goals

The selected MakeRoom Artist(s) Residents do agree to:

  • attend the welcome dinner
  • attend the reception and casually present their work to a small group and
  • add to the MakeRoom Artist Residency archive.

Selected artist/makers/creators will have the time and place to focus on their work and craft and the making of their art, in Minneapolis … in winter, for 10 days during the months of February and March. Exact dates are very flexible.

Artist residents will have access to the rich and varied creative culture of Minneapolis – home to the Soap Factory, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Institute of Art (free admission), the Frank Gehry designed Wiesman Art Museum (also, free admission) plus countless galleries and the famed Northeast Arts District, voted the Nation’s Best Arts District by USA Today in 2015.

The artist residency requires the completion of very short, no-cost, application.
