Martin House Creative Residency Program
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS | MARTIN HOUSE CREATIVE RESIDENCY PROGRAM
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House (Buffalo, New York) is pleased to announce a call for applications to its newly established Creative Residency Program. The residency provides individuals from multiple disciplines a thought-provoking environment in which to produce new works of the imagination inspired by one of the great examples of 20th century architecture.
Applications to the 2023 inaugural season will open on February 1 and close on March 31. They will be accepted in two distinct categories. The Artist Program supports the development and presentation of creative works. The Researcher Program provides opportunities to conduct research that will lead to published texts or projects in various fields, specifically as they relate to Frank Lloyd Wright and the Martin House.
Creative makers who are selected to participate will generally spend 2-4 weeks onsite either consecutively or incrementally within the specified residency term: June 1-October 23, 2023. Residents are also expected to deliver a free public program, performance, exhibition, or other creative presentation in order to share their Martin House-inspired work with the larger public.
Residents will receive a stipend of $5,000. Travel expenses of up to $1,000 will also be provided to residents who are from outside the Buffalo-Niagara region.
The Creative Residency Program is an opportunity for the Martin House to respond to and engage with our community. We anticipate that it will lead to more robust interpretations of Frank Lloyd Wright, the Martin House, and the people who once lived and worked here so as to expand the dialogue as to what great architecture is and why it matters.
