Work Exchange Application
Makers Circle Independent Residency Program provides live/work space to both emerging and professional photographers and makers. You can find more information about our independent residency program here. This application form is for artists seeking full-scholarships through our work exchange program. If you are not requesting a full-scholarship please use our standard residency application form.
Independent residencies are designed for artist who are capable of starting and completing processes on their own. A 20-minute studio orientation is provided on your first day. If you want support with a particular process, please inquire about facilitated residencies (check yes on the form below). PLEASE read “What to Know Before Visiting” before submitting your application.
Work Trade Scholarships: A very limited number scholarships are available. We acknowledge the financial and cultural inequity that exists in many arts institutions and feel committed to extending our resources and support to people from communities that have been marginalized, oppressed and/or economically disadvantaged. Because we have a limited number of full scholarships available, we are generally only able to grant 5 requests per year. References will be required.
Skillshare: On occasion, Makers Circle will have a need for a very specific skill such as website building, plumbing, electrical, gardening, or special printing skills, etc. During times of special need we will announce specific work trade opportunities on our website and prioritize residents who have the special skills we need. References will be required.
