WAVE FARM RESIDENCY PROGRAM

The 2017 Application is Now Open!
(Scroll for the Submission Form link.)

APPLICATION DEADLINE: The annual deadline is February 1,
for residencies taking place between June and October.

The Wave Farm Residency Program provides artists with a valuable opportunity to concentrate on new transmission works and conduct research about the genre using the Wave Farm Study Center resource library. Transmission Art encompasses work in participatory live art or time-based art such as radio, video, light, installation, and performance, as well as a multiplicity of other practices and media, informed by an intentional use of space (often the airwaves). In conjunction with their residencies, artists perform, are interviewed, and create playlists for broadcast on Wave Farm's WGXC 90.7-FM, a creative community radio station serving over 78,000 potential listeners in New York's Upper Hudson Valley, and international listeners online.

WGXC 90.7-FM is a program division of Wave Farm. Visit the Program link in the footer at the bottom of this page for more information about WGXC and other Wave Farm activities.

SCHEDULE

Residencies take place June through October and span 10 days, with a Friday arrival, and Sunday departure.

ARTIST FEE

Wave Farm Artists-in-residence receive a $700 artist fee.

ACCOMMODATIONS

The Residency Program hosts one artist at a time. Artists, which may include collaborative teams, are housed in the Wave Farm Study Center. Accommodations in the Study Center include two bedrooms (one full-sized bed each), studio workspace, kitchenette, lavatory, shower, as well as the Study Center library, WGXC 90.7-FM Acra broadcast studio, and Wave Farm offices. The Study Center is located on 29 acres in the northern foothills of Catskill Mountain Park. The property features meadows, two small ponds, and a pine forest with large walking paths. WiFi, electrical, and audio hook-ups are available throughout the bulk of the property. Please note: day visitors are welcome. Overnight guests (including family members) and pets are not permitted.

TRANSPORTATION + MEALS

Artists must pay for their own travel expenses as well as expenses related to meals during their stay. Transportation is available from the Hudson Amtrak station, the Kingston bus station, or the Albany airport, as well as local transport for groceries and supplies.

ELIGIBILITY

This is a call for all types of transmission art project proposals. Wave Farm's Residency Program application is an international open call. Artists should make a compelling argument in support of their proposed transmission art project, and either possess a significant body of past transmission-based work, or demonstrate the technical aptitude and capacity to complete the project. Full-time students are ineligible; however, exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis for career artists who may have returned to school for post-graduate work.

REVIEW + NOTIFICATION PROCESS

Applications will be evaluated in a peer review panel comprised of transmission artists, past residents, and Wave Farm staff. Finalists will be contacted for phone interviews, and notification will be made in March.
