The Inbreak Residency is a virtual co-learning and making environment that promotes a collective exploration of the intersections of art, faith, and race in the United States. This residency is for artists who are looking for a collaborative environment to generate community-focused projects, who are seeking the next step in their artistic development, or who want to grow in the area of creative leadership.
Over the course of three months, residents engage in a virtual program that includes ten group workshops, two group feedback sessions, two 1:1 studio visits, and a curriculum featuring a curated selection of viewings, readings, and dialogue prompts.
The residency culminates in a live or virtual exhibition.
Residents gather once a week for twelve consecutive weeks from January through March. Residency projects are due in April, and the culminating exhibition opens in May. Generally, residency exhibitions run through the end of June.
This residency takes places online, though there may be in-person exhibition opportunities available post-residency.
There are four residency spots available each year. For the 2023 Residency, we are only accepting visual artists (any medium within the visual arts qualifies). At this time, artists applying must live within the United States. Though we are currently not accepting applications from international artists, we are working on opening the residency to artists worldwide.
There is a one time fee of $540 for residency participation. This fee covers all twelve weeks of cohort sessions, residency books, studio visits, and potential guest lectures. If this fee is prohibitive to your participation, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team to see if there are any scholarships available. We may also be able to send you information for residency grants that can cover the residency costs. *There is no fee to apply to the residency.
Each cohort of residents explores a distinct residency theme (preselected by the Residency Team) in relation to the intersections of art, faith, and race. Residents are invited to explore the residency annual theme by leading one or two projects: 1) (Required) A community-centered project that encourages collective participation through a creative process of the artist’s choosing. 2) (Optional) An individual project featuring the artist’s own artwork and art process. Residents are encouraged to explore ways of combining their community and individual projects where possible.
