Each quarter during Fall, Winter & Summer we are joined by a creative person in residence who helps shape the quarterly programming theme while developing a related project of their own. Learn more about the residency program here or scroll down below.

WCCW Residency Details
The goal of the WCCW Residency Program is to bring new voices into the WCCW while supporting people with creative projects that challenge, expand, and deepen the organization’s intersections, topics of focus and audiences. The resident’s project influences the programming theme for the quarter they are in residence.
Residents receive a modest stipend (generally about $1,000), and full-time access to the residency studio space for the three month period of their project. Most residents use it as a studio/making space for a portion of the time, and then as an exhibition space for a portion.
There are three residencies per year, each one quarter long:
WCCW relationships with the resident begin at least one month before the start of the residency to collaborate on and develop the quarter’s themes and some programing in conjunction with WCCW.
How to submit a Letter of Inquiry for a WCCW Residency
If you are interested in being a WCCW Resident, please submit a letter of inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org! Residency LOIs should outline:
+ You, your interests and experience
+ A description/proposal for a single project lasting approximately 3 months that could take place anytime in the next year.
Please note that we have residents already schedule through 2019, so any proposals would be for consideration for 2020 at the earliest. The 2018-2019 Artist in Residence program is made possible through the support of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
