Artists have access to a combination of historical, contemporary and emerging media arts tools and materials that they would ordinarily not have available. This call is aimed primarily at non-time based projects, though those incorporating time-based elements into a primarily non-time based proposal are welcome to apply.
This opportunity is only open to residents of the state of New York. Please look to future calls if you live outside of New York State. The one-week residencies will be scheduled between December 1st, 2013 and June 1st, 2014.
