Museum of Fine Arts Houston - The Core Program
Core Program awards residencies to exceptional, highly motivated visual artists and critical writers who have completed their undergraduate or graduate training and are working to develop a sustainable practice. Residents engage with a wide range of leading artists, critics, curators, and art historians who are invited to meet individually with the residents, lead seminars, and deliver public lectures.

Fellows are expected to be active in their own creative and/or critical practice. Core fellows come together for a yearlong seminar, the content of which is driven by contemporary concerns, the interests and work of the fellows, and the Core lecture series and visitors.

The residency term is nine months, from September to May, and fellows may apply for a second term. Because the program is intended to foster intensive participation in an active peer group, including biweekly seminar meetings, Core fellows must reside in Houston for the duration of the Core term.

Monson Arts Summer Design Residencies
Monson Arts is a new arts center in Monson, Maine. Programs include residencies for artists and writers, intensive shorter workshops, and educational partnerships with area secondary schools.

Monson Arts is partnering with RISD to offer two, month-long, design focused summer residencies. Design residents will focus on developing prototypes and designs, and experimenting with materials.

Both RISD residents will receive a $1,000 stipend, room and board, a private studio, and access to Monson Arts’ wood and metal working shops. Monson Arts has a studio technician on staff 20 hours a week who will provide support. In addition, residents have access to digital fabrication equipment at the Innovative Media and Research Center (IMRC) at the University of Maine in Orono, a partner of Monson Arts.

Monson is located at the edge of Maine’s North Woods, a 3.5 million acres of forest bordering Canada. It is the last town on the Appalachian Trail before the beginning of the 100-Mile Wilderness that leads to Mount Katahdin. Since it was founded in 1822, the community has had an economy based on natural resources. In the late 19th through the early 20th centuries, slate quarries supported a thriving industry. Moosehead Manufacturing produced wood furniture from the 1945 until its closure in 2007. The region also has a rich arts tradition: Henry David Thoreau wrote about the area in The Maine Woods, photographer Berenice Abbott lived in Monson and nearby Blanchard, and traditional makers are well establish in the area including the North Woods Canoe Company, Atkinson.

Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Art + Technology Lab Grants
Art + Technology Lab Program:The Art + Technology Lab supports projects that explore artistic applications of emerging technologies and ideas related to technology and culture. The program offers artists and artist collectives financial and in-kind support for new projects, with the help of expert partners from the fields of science, technology,and engineering. The Art + Technology Lab is presented by Hyundai. The program is made possible by Accenture,Snap, Inc., DreamWorks Animation, SpaceX,Googleand other innovative companies and individuals. The Lab is part of the Hyundai Project: Art + Technology at LACMA, a joint initiative exploring the convergence of art and technology.

Applying for an Art + Technology Lab Grant
Art + Technology Lab grants are open to individuals and collectives located anywhere in the world. Grants may provide financial support of up to $50,000 per project to cover artist fees and direct costs, including materials. Recipients may also receive in-kind support, such as mentorship, coaching, advice, and exposure to technologies in development at partner organizations, including Hyundai, Accenture, Snap, Inc., DreamWorks Animation,SpaceX, and Google as well as independent artists and academics working in art and technology from Jet Propulsion Laboratory,and elsewhere. This year, the Art + Technology Lab is pleased to also be collaborating with the MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative.

Areas of Interest
While there is a preference for projects that explore emerging technology, prior technological experience or knowledge is not required.Artists who have not used advanced technology in their work are encouraged to consider how technology applications might build upon and expand the trajectory of their work. Recipients need not be located in or near Los Angeles. The Lab welcomes proposals for projects that are presented outside the bounds of the museum campus, including conceptual projects and those that unfold in virtual or online spaces, or in other geographic or extraterrestrial locations.
2We are particularly interested in exploratory ideas and proposals that leave room for refinement in collaboration with technologists and the museum. In addition, preference will be given to projects that are publicly accessible, consistent with LACMA’s mission, and produce models, prototypes, data, code, or other material that can be shared broadly. We also welcome proposals that utilize museum resources, including access to data, material from our archives, information about our collection, and the use of museum digital properties as a platform for presenting projects, though that is not a requirement. In general, applicants are encouraged to think beyond the traditional in-gallery exhibition presentation, to consider other possibilities and forms of public engagement.

TRAVERS is a laboratory for artistic practice and theory, and a journey of exploration into cross-artform creation. Three separate ‘camps’ provide professional artists, scholars and other people involved in the arts, with an opportunity to come together and take part in an event that crosses disciplines and borders. TRAVERS is an encounter with the participants’ own practice: a confrontation with their strengths and weaknesses. The camps will scrutinise their habits and turn them inside out. In TRAVERS, the journey is the goal, and that journey features a cornucopia of meetings, surprises, shocks and challenges. With luck we will lose our way and discover new travelling companions in a totally unfamiliar landscape.
– You can apply personally or as an artistic team. If you apply as a team, all team members must make individual applications.
– TRAVERS will contribute to travel expenses for anyone who is not based in Aarhus. However, your accommodation during your participation in the camp will be your own responsibility.

Locust Projects Summer Residency
Locust Projects, Miami's longest-running alternative art space, invites graduate-level artists to submit project proposals for an exhibition in their Project Room during the summer of 2018.

Locust Project accepts proposals from artists working in any media and artists can apply as individuals or two-person collaboratives presenting a singular idea. Special consideration is given to artists who are presenting work that is directly related to their MFA studies or artists who have never realized a solo exhibition previously. All artists must be currently enrolled in an MFA program during the spring of 2018 to apply for the LAB MFA program.

SmashCut Film Lab, Taliesin Nexus
The SmashCut Film Lab (formerly known as Liberty Lab for Film) is an advanced program for those who have filmmaking, screenwriting, producing experience and want an opportunity to work alongside like-minded creatives with the guidance of seasoned professionals.

If you and your treatment are selected, you will receive a grant for $10,000 to make your short film or web-series and be paired with an established industry professional who will mentor you through a 100 day development process. You and your team will then head into production and through to post-production, where at the conclusion, we will host a gala showcase screening where your film will premiere along with your fellow SmashCut participants’ projects.

Along the way, you will also attend multiple mini-workshops that focus on screenwriting, producing, directing and post-production, all lead by veterans of the industry. You will hear from experts in the fields that your film’s theme touches upon. Taliesin Nexus is committed to furthering your development as a storyteller and filmmaker by connecting you with experienced professionals who want to see you succeed.

All participants who do not already own it, will receive a complimentary full copy of Final Draft (valued at $249.) Final Draft is the leading software when it comes to screenwriting and it will be yours to keep after completion of the program. This will no doubt ensure you are armed with the right tools to go along with that talent.

During this film lab, you will experience an intensive process that is not unlike what filmmakers in Hollywood must contend with: a rigorous development process, valuable collaboration, working within a budget, and notes & feedback from your mentor and Taliesin Nexus. This is not for the faint of heart. You and your partners will be responsible for producing a high quality film. At the end of the program your film will be featured in our private annual SmashCut film screening at a first run movie theater in Los Angeles and at private screening events in selected cities across the country.
