ISCP announces its first residency program developed specifically for New York City-based artists. Beginning in 2015, this program will offer up to seven year-long residencies that will include a subsidized, private studio in East Williamsburg and access to professional development programs. The residencies will take place within the same building as ISCP’s acclaimed international residency program, and artists will have access to ISCP’s dynamic, in-house community of artists and curators from all over the world.
This program will offer much-needed affordable workspace to New York City artists, while expanding ISCP’s international community to include local artists. Artists at all career stages and working across all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Artists who collaborate can also apply to share a large studio and related costs. If accepted, artists must provide proof of New York City residency (e.g. income tax returns or utility bills) for the past two years.
Separate from ISCP’s international residency program, where residents are fully sponsored, the New York City-based artist studios, from 200-350 square feet in size, will cost $700-900 per month. This includes 24-hour access to a furnished studio, kitchen and lounge, WiFi, administration and all utilities. Artists may participate in professional development workshops by leaders in the field that will provide tools and strategies for fundraising, studio visits, and artist writing among other issues.
There will be the possibility to renew the studio for a second year. Residents will be chosen by a jury of art professionals through a competitive process.
