2024 Eyebeam Fellowship Open Call


The Democracy Machine program is about to enter its third and final phase. Selected artists participating in this six-month program will receive a $20,000 stipend and work in fellowship to support the development and implementation of their projects. Eyebeam will select five non-New York-based artists from anywhere in the world and five NYC-based artists for this fellowship. The fellowship will run from February 15, 2024, through August 15, 2024. The program will provide the same level of support and opportunity regardless of location through Eyebeam’s implementation of a digital-first approach.

As part of this fellowship, Eyebeam will provide access to our network of peers, mentors, and experts in the field and to partnered state-of-the-art facilities and resources. The fellowship will hybridize online and in-person components, including workshops, mentorship sessions, and networking opportunities. Additionally, Eyebeam aims to make available robust opportunities for exhibition, presentation, and public engagement at the close of the fellowship.

Applications due October 1st, 2023. 

Writing the Next World Writing Workshop

Join Bog & Thunder alongside writer/podcasters adrienne maree brown and Autumn Brown this summer in Slane, Ireland for a writing workshop unlike any other. Come ideate, experiment with genre, and find a writing voice that creates more possibilities for our collective future, all while exploring the beautiful Boyne Valley and eating outstanding food. This 5-day event will be rooted in the lineages of visionary and speculative fiction and Black Feminist Praxis. We will have a beautiful balance of private writing retreat time, collective world-building with fellow artists, practical skill development, and local adventure.

We are prioritizing applications from participants who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color. We will have a very limited number of partial scholarships available.


Cost: $5,000 USD. Partial scholarships available. 

Ma’s House Residency

Ma’s House’s Artist-In-Residency program is open to US-based creatives of color working in any genre of visual art, creative writing, and performance arts. We encourage resident artists to pursue work that relates to Shinnecock’s history, the local landscape, community based work, and critical engagement in issues of diversity, race, and identity. Three chosen artists will be awarded an unrestricted $500 during the residency which spans 2-4 weeks at Ma’s House on the Shinnecock Indian Reservation in Southampton, NY.

Ma’s House is a year-round residency. You can apply any time and residents are welcome year-round.

Organizations that have regular Artist in Residence Programs available: 

Good Hart Artist in Residency Program: The Good Hart Artist Residency located in Good Hart, Michigan offers 2-3 week residencies to dedicated visual artists, writers, and composers/songwriters. The residency provides full room and board including a newly completed residency building with a 24-foot x 14-foot detached studio, a fully stocked kitchen with several meals provided by host family each week, a $500.00 stipend, and quiet, natural surroundings to concentrate on creative work. The resident artist is housed in a rural area within walking distance of Lake Michigan and the village of Good Hart, along the “Tunnel of Trees,” a Scenic Heritage Route. The Good Hart Artist Residency offers a solitary experience by hosting one resident at a time.

Lakeside Inn Artist in Residence Program:  Selected artists will participate for a two-week period (three weeks for ceramic artists) based on their proposals, expressive medium, and past body of work. Residents stay in the residency apartment located behind the inn, and also have 24/7 access to the clay studio on the main level or artist  studio on the second level. WiFi is available for the studios and the apartment.  

Mackinaw State Historic Park: 

The Mackinac State Historic Parks Artist-In-Residence Program is designed to promote and encourage the creation of artistic works inspired by the history, natural wonders, and beauty of Mackinac Island. The residencies are available to artists in all mediums, including writers, composers, sculptures, and visual artists including photographers, among others.


The 2 and 3 week residencies are available beginning in early June and continuing through early October.

Ox-Bow: We’ve reimagined our residency programs to explore different approaches to serving artists. Below you will find a number of new models, each with a unique take on how artists come together in community to share, build new skills, dive into critical conversations, and spend focused time on making. 

Popps Studio and Emporium Residencies: For emerging, mid-career, and established visual artists with a studio based practice who are interested in an immersive experience in Detroit and Hamtramck.

Red Bull Arts Detroit Artist Residency: The Artist Residency program is central to Red Bull Arts Detroit. We’re committed to providing artists the space, time, and resources necessary to push their practices forward by offering a two-month residency at our facilities in Detroit. We provide housing, studio space, an $8,000 stipend, a $2,000 budget for production of work during the residency, and access to the local arts community through studio visits, exhibition tours, and personal connections. The Residency is designed for artists at all stages of their careers interested in experimenting with new techniques, developing new work, or focusing on research.

Red Bull Arts Detroit Curatorial Fellowship: Red Bull Arts Detroit is committed to holistically supporting the arts locally and nationally. As such, we seek to provide alternative exhibition platforms to the vast network of independent curators who offer new ways of seeing, understanding, and experiencing artists and their works. The program creates an opportunity for a curator to realize an exhibition concept and bring it to the public in Detroit. The selected curator will demonstrate in their proposal a level of engagement and thoughtfulness about how their exhibition engages with the local city and community, and why it should take place in Detroit. Red Bull Arts Detroit will support the curator in the execution of the exhibition and it’s public programming. 

Sleeping Bear Dunes Artist in Residence: 

The Artist-In-Residence program is open to professional American writers, composers and visual artists, including photographers, whose work can be influenced and enhanced by this superb Michigan scene. It provides resident artists the opportunity to capture the moods of Sleeping Bear Dunes in their particular medium. The program provides rent-free use of a park house located in the vicinity of the village of Empire (no pets). You may also choose to stay in a campsite in one of the developed mainland campgrounds.

Two 3-week residencies are available during September and October.
