Woodstock Artist in Residence

Sponsoring Organization

Center for Photography of Woodstock



Woodstock, NY






CPW’s Artist-In-Residence Program provides opportunities for US-based artists and critics/scholars/curators of color, working in photography. The residency provides 27/7 access to facilities along with financial, critical, and technical support.

CPWs wish is to free the artist from the busy routines and demands of everyday life – and to provide a sanctuary for creativity. WOODSTOCK AIR encourages participants to pursue creative risk-taking in an environment rich in cultural resources. Working without distraction or interruption, participants focus intensely on their own work, continue works in progress, set goals for the future, and break new ground.

Each year CPW offers seven residencies for artists of color and one residency for a critic/scholar/curator of color. Former residents may not reapply (as of 2017), so that the program may continue to impact as many new artists as possible.WOODSTOCK AI­R marks the first residency experience of over 65 percent of its participants.

WOODSTOCK AIR was listed among the top 20 residency programs in the U.S. by Artinfo and one of the top residencies for photographers in the world by Format Magazine.

Residencies include:

  • accommodations at a residence located within walking distance from CPW and the center of Woodstock’s business district
  • 24/7 access to CPW’s workspace facilities, including darkroom, digital lab (large format printers, flatbed and dedicated film scanners), and library
  • critical and technical support
  • stipend for food and travel, and honorarium
  • exhibition and related opportunities
