Open call – international artist residency program – deadline 15 April 2015

The Residency Program is open to emerging and established US Based and International Artists.

The NARS Foundation is currently accepting applications for our International Artist Residency Program. Our residency program supports emerging and mid-career artists as well as artists with established national and/or international reputations for whom a change of environment may offer refreshment and inspiration. We offer 24/7 access to 280 – 325 sq ft studio spaces in our diverse artist community in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Our residency artists benefit from our community driven program and the ongoing dialogue between fellow residency artists. Residents also have the advantage of working alongside emerging and established NYC based artists in our studio facilities. While experimenting and creating new work in the studio, artists are encouraged to engage with the public through public events, presentations, open studios, exhibitions, outings, and studio visits with curators, gallerists, and arts administrators.

During our Spring Open Call, NARS will offer 3-month residencies for U.S. based applicants and 3-month and 6-month residencies for international applicants. Only U.S. based artists are eligible for the Full and Partial Residency Fellowships at this time. International artists who need funding to cover the program fee, travel, materials, and accommodations should apply to other sources for this support.
