Welcome to Centrum's Application Portal For 2024 Residencies

We’ve updated our application process and will be accepting applications for all three of our residency programs (Emerging Residencies, In the Making, and Self-Directed) via the same application portal between May 8-August 15, 2024. In your application, simply select the residencies you’d like to be considered for. 

Our residency program is aimed at providing artists, writers, and creatives in all disciplines permission to relax, to focus, and/or re-invent their practice as needed. We believe that residencies are a central part of any artistic practice and that magic happens when you take time to reflect and focus on what matters most. We also believe that community matters, and that being in residence alongside others expands networks, fosters collectivity and friendship, and helps our arts ecosystem thrive.  We encourage all applicants to read all about what Centrum Residencies offer here

In this application stage, we will ask for: 

  • Work samples OR a link directly to an existing online portfolio so that our panel can understand your practice. Our panels look to curate a diversity of practices, work that is relevant to contemporary issues and work that expands thinking in its field. Residencies are open to practices that include but not limited to: visual arts, writing, curatorial, performance, dance, music, and social practices. 
  • Demographics to ensure that we are selecting from a diverse pool of applicants.  
  • The type of workspace/accommodations needed for your work
  • One short paragraph about what a residency would mean to you. 
  • Indicate which residency programs you want to be considered for. 

Submit by August 15th to be considered for the  2024 Emerging Artist/Writers Residency, In the Making Residencies, or Self-Directed Residencies.

Our Review Process
Applicants will be reviewed and selected by a panel of reviewers representing our alumni and a diversity of backgrounds and modalities. For 2024 we will also experiment with a lottery-based selection process for a portion of our self-directed residency slots.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
