Artist in Residence Open Call
7 Knickerbocker Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11237
WORTHLESSSTUDIOS launches an inaugural Artist in Residence program running from September to December 2023. The residency will be production focused, supporting underserved sculptors and installation artists at pivotal moments in their careers. This residency will expand on their comprehensive approach to helping artists realize their creative visions while ensuring they have resources to advance their skills and careers.
The first cohort will be welcomed to WORTHLESSSTUDIOS’ new 10,000 square-foot facility at 7 Knickerbocker Avenue in Brooklyn. Their residency aspires to include Black, Indigenous, people of color, LGBTQIAP+, women, nonbinary, and disabled artists, to fulfill the urgent need for fabrication tools, financial support, technical assistance, and space that so many underrepresented artists seek.
Over the past three years, WORTHLESSSTUDIOS has provided mission-driven opportunities for artists through their open calls for FREE FILM, the Plywood Protection Project, and 1-800 Happy Birthday. Apply today and be a part of WORTHLESSSTUDIOS’ next breakout program!
