2024 Artist Residency program
Each year, The Watermill Center invites artists to develop works that critically investigate, challenge, and extend the existing norms of artistic practice as part of our year-round Artist Residency Program.
The Artist Residency Program is process-based, providing artists with time and space to focus on developing their practice in a communal environment that encourages experimentation and innovation. Artists-in-Residence share their creative process with the community through open studios, workshops, and artist talks.
The Artist Residency Program is open to national and international artists 21+ years old. We accept artists from all disciplines, including but not limited to: visual arts, performance, architecture, film/video, literature, interdisciplinary arts, academic research, and music composition. Solo artists or collectives (such as theatre or dance companies) are welcome to apply.
Artists-in-Residence receive access to an extensive collection of resources: 20,000 square feet of rehearsal/design spaces and outdoor stages; a theater production archive; The Watermill Center Study Library; The Watermill Collection; and over ten acres of landscaped grounds and gardens.
