The Woodstock Artists Association & Museum (WAAM) will host a Habitat For Artists studio from May 2 through July 29. We are seeking proposals from artists who wish engage in 1 to 3
Deadline for proposals extended to Sunday February 25.
Proposals should be designed
around engaging the public in your work and creative process. Projects
like collaborative art making, interviews, portraits, videography, and transforming
the studio itself have been very successful in the past. The active creation of work that engages the community during your
time in the studio is a major part of the residency.
What is HFA?
HFA is a collective project that uses the idea of the artist’s studio as a catalyst for mutual engagement between artists and communities. The “habitats” are small, temporary, 6’ by 6’ studios installed at a variety of locations. The studio at WAAM will be located in the front of our building and highly visible to the local community. While exploring their own creative process, the artists engage in active dialogues with the public which is invited into a new interaction and discussion about art, the artist's role, as well as topics which are pertinent or relevant to that local community.
There is no electricity in the HFA studio but can be supplied by running an extension cord from our main building. Artists are expected to be self sufficient. WAAM staff can help with set up and take down. WAAM can supply extra chairs and tables.
There may be inclement weather and WAAM will be reserving some days for rain dates.
