Call for Artists: Mural Arts Program Artist Residencies

Mural Arts Philadelphia invites photographers and sound artists to apply for the Tacony Learning and Arts Building (LAB) 2017 Autumn Artist Residencies. Two residencies are available: one for photographers and one for sound artists. These 12-week residencies, housed in a storefront arts hub on the Torresdale Avenue Commercial Corridor in Northeast Philadelphia, are a unique opportunity to combine personal practice, community engagement, and the creation of civically-focused public art. Deadline: July 10.

The artist selected for the residency will have access to the LAB studio space for both personal practice and project creation; the space will be shared with LAB art classes and workshops. The artist will receive a total stipend of $4,000, in addition to full funding for materials and supplies associated with project creation. The artist will be expected to spend approximately 15 hours per week on-site in the studio and the Tacony neighborhood. A portion of this time will be devoted to engaging the community through workshops with youth and adults, LAB open houses, relevant community meetings, and similar events.
