University of Pennsylvania ArtsEdge Residencies: April 15
March 17, 2009, Volume 55, No. 25

We are accepting applications for the second year of the ArtsEdge Residency Project at the University of Pennsylvania; a collaboration of the Kelly Writers House, the fine arts department of the School of Design, and Penn’s Facilities & Real Estate Services (FRES).

The University of Pennsylvania ArtsEdge Residency project is designed to encourage and support the careers of emerging artists and writers. Through ArtsEdge Residencies, we offer two one-year residencies in a live/work space near Penn’s campus. ArtsEdge aims to support the creative work of young artists and writers, and create a live/work environment that will inspire interdisciplinary exploration.

Residencies include a dedicated studio for each writer/artist, living space, and close affiliation with the writing and artistic communities at Penn. During the course of their residencies, writers and artists will develop at least one collaborative project with the Writers House or fine arts department. Qualified applicants may also be considered to teach one course at Penn in the spring semester.

Two residencies are available, one for a visual artist and one for a writer. The residences are not intended for current undergraduates. No Penn affiliation necessary. Move-in date: September 1, 2009.

Applications due by April 15, 2009. For details, see http://writing.upenn.edu/wh/involved/awards/artsedge/.
