CALL FOR ARTISTS 

2017 Autumn Residency Tacony Sound Project 

The Tacony Library and Arts Building (LAB) invites sound artists to apply for a 12-week residency beginning this September. This residency is a unique opportunity to combine personal practice, community collaboration, and the creation of civically-focused public art.

The resident artist will work with this historic and diverse community to develop a sound-based project. The project is intended to activate the LAB building, encouraging community involvement in the space, and must have a public component, such as a sound walk or sound installation.

The artist selected for the residency will have access to the LAB studio space for both personal practice and project creation; the space will be shared with LAB art classes and workshops.

The artist will receive a total stipend of $4,000, in addition to full funding for materials and supplies. The artist will be expected to spend approximately 15 hours per week on-site in the studio and the Tacony neighborhood.

Some of this time will be devoted to engaging the community through workshops and activities with youth and adults. The artist will develop these activities in collaboration with the LAB Project Manager. There are opportunities to partner with community organizations, including those musically-based. The artist will also be expected to take part in LAB open houses, relevant community meetings, and similar events.
