Residency Statement:
We will draw.

I am interested in drawing as a disciplined process used to search for a solution.

This residency will bring together a group of people who use mark-making as a tool for problem-solving and who use drawing as a way to visualize their thought process. We will use drawing to lead us. This can mean different things for different people, and I welcome varying interpretations. For me, drawing is a linear process of multiple refinements toward a final iconic, symbol-like image. There will not be drawing lessons per se, rather, I will curate a group that will take inspiration in each other’s like-minded approach to drawing. Applicants should come to the residency with their own project or problem to work on.


Application Requirements:
1) A brief personal bio and CV.

2) A description of how drawing fits into your practice.

3) A description of the project or problem you want to work on during the residency.

4) 5-10 images of your work


Residency Fee:

All residency fees, room, and board are waived; this does not include travel, transportation, and artist materials.

Application fee: $25

Residency Statement:
I look forward to working with musicians and performing artists who transmit emotion over time. In order to recruit a diverse cohort, I commit to welcome all approaches to structuring creative work that engages with the concept of organising sound, even if the work does not create audible spectra. Associates should be prepared to: 1) speak about their own work and their influences; 2) engage in critical dialog about music / sound art / visual music; 3) discuss more practical concerns such as notation, technical problems, or documentation; and 4) commit to developing a community over the course of the residency. Collaboration between residents will be encouraged but not required. During the residency we will engage in Deep Listening practices to heighten our consciousness of the world of sound and the sound of the world. In addition to group meetings, I will be available for individual artistic/career coaching and am happy to look at professional materials such as resumes and cover letters. I will bring a small 8.1 setup for residents interested in multichannel sound.


Application Requirements:
1.    A short bio with a sentence about what the other residents could learn from you (550 words     max*, PDF)

2.   A statement of any specific goals or interests related to the residency (1000 words max*, PDF)

3.    2 recorded work samples (video links or audio) with accompanying scores if appropriate (PDF)

4.    Program note or an artistic statement about the 2 work samples (PDF)

*Shorter is acceptable and encouraged

Residency Statement:
I discovered something important during the pandemic. Being in a room, even on zoom, full of artists talking about work and their art practice made me happy, gave me solace, helped me endure. That is why I’m excited to be part of the Atlantic Center for the Arts mentorship program. 

I consider myself an intuitive artist whose path to a life in the arts was circuitous. In practical terms, I bring my experience as a mentor to this program, one that includes writing and performing for over three decades, teaching performance composition at various universities, and lately leading professional development workshops for LatinX artists. 

My aim is to create a safe space where we can be open-minded, share work, entertain questions, voice doubts, give respectful feedback. We will speak, listen, and engage in dialogue acknowledging the importance of making art with a sense of play. 

The time we spend together will include prompts from artists in multiple disciplines from writers to choreographers and taking a cue from Cervantes who said: “all sorrows are less with bread” there will be shared meals to enjoy a collegial arts salon.

I welcome artists of all disciplines to apply and whether you have a formed project that needs further development or are looking to create something new and have just a hunch or an idea, I invite you to apply. 

Lastly but most importantly, I’d like us to consider how the work we are making reflects and or responds to the many problems of the world today. 

I hope you will join me as we venture into the unknown to discover new possibilities. 



Application Requirements:
1. Bio and CV

2. 5 images of your work and video of work. Video can be online link YouTube, Vimeo, website, etc. and no more than 10 minutes.

3. A letter of intent that includes answers to the following: What made you choose a life in the arts? What has been a major change in your life? How have you coped with the pandemic? Who are your artistic influences? What do you want to get out of this residency?
