OPEN CALL: Fall + Winter 2020 Residencies @ Elsewhere Studios
About us: ELSEWHERE STUDIOS RESIDENCY PROGRAM
Elsewhere Studios Artist Residency provides space and time for artists to create in a unique and supportive environment. Time spans are individually based – 1 to 6 months; we can accommodate 4 to 6 artists at a time. We welcome artists, writers, composers, and performance artists at any stage of their careers as well as scientists, activists, teachers, students, or any kind of creative thinker interested in exploring and expanding their work. Elsewhere is a choose-your-own-adventure style residency. Situated in downtown Paonia, the spaces are versatile, providing residents with opportunities to connect with the community… or just time to focus on work. There is an equipped woodshop onsite, printing access, a ceramics co-op as well as performance space upon request.
In order to create art in a unique and supportive environment, Elsewhere offers four artistically crafted and unique residency spaces. Two are living and studio space combined, and two share studio space. There is a monthly residency fee which includes living and studio space, utilities and WiFi. Please see website for details about spaces. https://www.elsewherestudios.or

Expectations towards the artist
Elsewhere is a choose-your-own-adventure style residency. Situated in downtown Paonia, the spaces are versatile, providing residents with opportunities to connect and interact with other artists in the community, to create or participate in art exhibitions, and to teach classes or workshops. Residents are expected to participate in two events per month: a “Meet-n-Greet” at the beginning of the month to introduce themselves and their work to the community, as well as an “Open Studio” at the end of the month as part of Final Friday Artwalk. Artists are also expected to keep a clean workspace and common area as well as submitting one blog post to the website during their stay.
Residency Fees range from $600-850/ per month space depending but inquire about our limited scholarships for Artists of color n
