Wave Farm ResidencyDEADLINE: 1 February 2021
In 2021, the Wave Farm Residency Program will provide artists with a valuable opportunity to concentrate on new radio artworks and conduct research about the genre using the Wave Farm Study Center resource library. Applicants are asked to propose a specific radio art project, which they will complete while in residence and premiere on Wave Farm's full-power FM radio station: WGXC 90.7-FM Radio for Open Ears.
This is a call for projects that conceptually and formally use radio as an artistic medium. The act of transmission and reception over terrestrial AM/FM airwaves is intentional and integral to the work. Proposals who use radio broadcast in service to another genre, or simply as a means for distribution will not be competitive.
Wave Farm's Residency Program application is an international open call. Artists should make a compelling argument in support of their proposed project, and either possess a significant body of past radio-based work, or demonstrate the technical aptitude and capacity to complete the project. Full-time students are ineligible; however, exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis for career artists who may have returned to school for post-graduate work.
- Residencies span 10 days and take place June through October.
- Wave Farm Artists-in-residence receive a $700 artist fee.
- The Residency Program hosts one artist at a time. Artists, which may include collaborative teams, are housed in the Wave Farm Study Center.
