Applications for 2022 Artist-in-Residence Now Open

Woodstock AIR Lola Flash (2019) working in the CPW Air house studio

Deadline to Submit: Monday, March 7

Supporting photography-based artists, writers, and curators and the dialogue around diversity, race, identity, and social justice.

Residencies can change lives and set careers on a path for success. CPW’s renowned artist-in-residence program, Woodstock AIR, has supported artists such as LaToya Ruby Frazier, Daesha Dev√≥n Harris, Kei Ito, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, William Cordova, and Xaviera Simmons early in their careers, providing them with a reaffirming experience of technical, creative and critical support.

Woodstock AIR was created in 1999 to support photography-based artists of color, and to expand the dialogue around diversity, race, and identity in the context of social justice. Since then 146 artists, writers, and curators have come through the program. Support includes a $2,000 honorarium, access to CPW’s digital lab, living space with a large studio equipped with a large format printer, Imacon scanner, editing setup, and ample workspace, as well as critical and technical support.

If you feel you could benefit from a 4-6 week creative period in a nurturing environment, please apply now. If you know of others who would benefit from the experience, please share this call with them. Anybody may apply, however, priority will be given to artists of color or those whose work engages with topics of diversity and race in the context of social justice.

Deadline to apply is Monday, March 7 at midnight EST.

The application fee for WOODSTOCK AIR 2022 has been waived due to the generous support of the Joy of Giving Something Foundation.

“It was everything I had hoped for and more. I never could have anticipated the productivity of this residency at this critical time in my life. Simply the opportunity to have time away from the distractions of daily life enhanced my research and creation manifold.”— Claire Warden, AIR 2016
