A Studio in the Woods
New Orleans, Louisiana
A Studio in the Woods will be offering six-week residencies which include a stipend and supply budget between September 2018-May 2019. The deadline for submissions is April 16, 2018.

A full description including all important dates and application can be found through the ticket link. With questions or for more information please email [email protected]

Adaptations Residencies will provide artists with time, space, scholarship and staff support to foster critical thinking and creation of new works. The call is open to artists of all disciplines who have demonstrated an established dialogue with environmental and culturally related issues and a commitment to seeking and plumbing new depths. We ask artists to describe in detail how the region will affect their work, to propose a public component to their residency and to suggest ways in which they will engage with the local community.

Adaptations Residencies invite artists to examine how climate driven adaptations — large and small, historic and contemporary, cultural and scientific — are shaping our future. New Orleans and the region are frequently invoked as one of the areas most vulnerable to the effects of environmental change. Our highly manipulated landscape can be seen as a microcosm of the global environment, manifesting both the challenges and possibilities inherent in the ways humans interact with urban and natural ecosystems. With nearly half of the world’s population living within 40 miles of a coastline with rising seas, the concerns of Southern Louisiana resonate globally.

Proposals are due April 16th, 2018 and residencies will be awarded by May 25th, 2018.
