LMCC Residency and Programs

Marc Robinson, Myth Monolith (Liberation Movement), 2007

I have mentioned the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) in a past post and now have more information about them. They are currently accepting applications for their residency programs and are hosting a series of informative sessions for artists. See below for more information.

Open Call for Applications: Workspace 2009-2010
Studio Residencies for Emerging Visual Artists and Writers
Deadline: Thursday, April 9, 2009 at 5PM

Workspace is a studio residency program for emerging visual artists and writers focused on the creative process. Residents receive free studio space in Lower Manhattan for nine months, a modest one-time stipend (depending on available funds), access to a community of peers, meetings and studio visits with arts and literary professionals, and exposure to new audiences through open studios and other public programs. There is one application deadline per year.

More information about Workspace, including complete Application Guidelines, is available here.

Info Sessions (Suggested, but not required)

Attend an Info Session where past residents and LMCC staff will review the application guidelines and answer questions about the residency and the selection process.

RSVP is required and space is limited.

Thursday, March 19, 4PM at 77 Water Street, 10th Floor


TNT: Training, Networking and Talks
Work Sample Dos and Don’ts
Led by Liza Green, Grants and Services, LMCC

In order to access funding, residencies and other professional opportunities, artists are often required to submit work samples for consideration. Who reviews work samples? How are they reviewed? How important is formatting? Cue points? Context? Our interactive workshop will cover these issues and provide a series of examples that will allow participants to judge for themselves whether a work sample is compelling and why.

Artists from all disciplines are welcome.

Workshop is free, but space is extremely limited.
RSVP is required.

Registrants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and will be notified by email of their acceptance.

Tuesday, March 10, 6:30PM at Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, 125 Maiden Lane, 2nd Floor
