The COLLIDER is a space for local artists to take up residence at the South Central Regional Library, work on their craft in a public space, and engage with the public. Once per year, Louisville Free Public Library (LFPL) and its designated committee will select artists to work out of the space for a period of at least one month, but not to exceed three months. This allows LFPL to nurture an already thriving art community and to encourage creativity and artistry in all citizens.
Artist-in-residence for the South Central Regional Library will be selected by the Artist Selection Committee on a yearly basis. All disciplines including visual, performing, written word, and beyond will be considered for residency. The application deadline is April 20th, 2017. The committee will meet and inform applicants of their status by the end of May, 2017. If you have specific questions about the application, please email email@example.com.
Artist-in-residence will be offered a stipend of $800 per month, with additional funds available for program supplies. The artist will be responsible for holding scheduled studio hours for at least 16 hours per week and for teaching at least three classes during the residency period to the public. Classes can range from art instruction to general information about the art form, and can be geared toward a specific age range or open to all.
