2020 Artists in Residence in Everglades Application
For International artists
AIRIE presents a one-month, multi-disciplinary artist residency in partnership with Everglades National Park. Artists are invited to live and work for one month inside Everglades National Park, working with AIRIE and the Park to enhance their understanding of this unique and fragile ecosystem.
Each artists/artist group is provided a mini-grant of $1000, a furnished, air-conditioned apartment, 24/7 access to the Everglades National Park and introductions to park rangers, scientists, biologists, cultural and community leaders.
A National Park residency isn’t for everybody. It is for serious professionals who wish to work alone and unfettered in the challenge and beauty of the American wilderness. It is for those who deeply care about the environment and wish to contribute to it as well as benefit from it. The park can accommodate one resident per month, and residents are expected to stay the entire month.
AIRIE welcomes visual artists, scholars, composers, choreographers and writers to seek both solitude and solidarity in the inspiring environment of Everglades National Park.
Visual arts include painting, sculpture, photography, installation and video. Writers include poets and authors of fiction, creative non-fiction and creative journalism. Composers, musicians, dancers and performance artists are welcome to apply. Work submitted should be of professional quality. No student work will be eligible.
Residency experiences are tailored to the interests of each individual artist, creating opportunities for independence and solitude, as well as interaction, collaboration and public engagement as each artist desires.
