Adaptations: Living with Change Residencies at A Studio in the Woods

A Studio in the Woods is now accepting applications for Adaptations: Living with Change Residencies. Residencies are 6 weeks, will take place between September 2019 and May 2020, and include a stipend and materials budget. The call is open to artists of all disciplines who have demonstrated an established dialogue with environmental and culturally related issues and a commitment to seeking and plumbing new depths. We ask artists to describe in detail how the region will affect their work, to propose a public component to their residency and to suggest ways in which they will engage with the local community. New Orleans and the region are frequently invoked as one of the areas most vulnerable to the effects of environmental change. Our highly manipulated landscape can be seen as a microcosm of the global environment, manifesting both the challenges and possibilities inherent in the ways humans interact with urban and natural ecosystems. With nearly half of the world’s population living within 40 miles of a coastline with rising seas, the concerns of Southern Louisiana resonate globally. Adaptations Residencies invite artists to examine how climate driven adaptations – large and small, historic and contemporary, cultural and scientific – shape our future. Adaptations Residencies will provide artists with time, space, scholarship and staff support to foster critical thinking and creation of new works. Proposals are due by April 22nd and residencies will be awarded by June 14th, 2019. Direct questions to Cammie Hill-Prewitt at info@astudiointhewoods.org. Please CLICK HERE FOR APPLICATION
