Open to artists and curators, working independently or as a team, who reside in the United States or British Columbia and have preliminary planning experience in arts-related work with a focus on equity and social justice. Candidates with preliminary planning experience are strongly encouraged to apply as a team as we support the growth and development of emerging artists and curators. Artist teams of no more than two people are eligible if the team is able to show evidence of past collaborative work. Mentorship is available for individuals and teams who feel they would benefit from guidance, dialogue, and support from a seasoned planning artist. There is an expectation that an agreed percentage of residency time will be in King County, WA with the remaining residency work to be conducted remotely.
