MAPSpace Residency
The residency application process for the upcoming residency is now open!
Deadline June 30, 2014
Notification July 15, 2014
Residency dates: August 16- September 13, 2014
(Dates may vary slightly if necessary)

Residency is free. No application or fees of any kind. 

This is a studio/workspace residency for collaborative artist teams (2+) lasting 3-4 weeks. Residency culminates in an exhibition, performance or event in same space. Artist teams take over the gallery space as a studio work space to create a unique work(s). 
The space may be open to the public at agreed to times during the residency at the discretion of the artists and the gallery. 

Work should be collaborative and created in the time and space of the residency. It can be traditional, conceptual. site-specific, community-based, interactive, performative, interdisciplinary, object-based or a combination- all forms will be considered. Quality of project is the primary criteria. Consideration of the surrounding community is given extra consideration. This is not a community project- residents do not have to directly engage the public unless this is a natural part of their project.

This is a NO LIVING- workspace only- residency. Artists are responsible for room and board, so artists from the local area are given extra consideration. Artists are expected to be present and working in the space 15-20 hours (flex & approx) per week during the residency.

Gallery supplies 24/7 access space; free wifi; access to some basic tools if arranged; basic support from staff; publicity; cards etc for the residency and event; and all party planning and refreshment–only. All materials, supplies, technology including computers, food etc used by artists is the responsibility of the artists with exceptions considered during the residency.

Artists supply all  travel costs and materials, including art supplies, computer, projector or monitor needs for exhibition if necessary. The budget is just a basic guide to show readiness and ability to execute project fully, and will not be considered set in stone. The gallery will offer as much support as we can, but does not supply any cash funds for materials of any kind.
Miranda Arts Project Space is a loft in a 100 yr. old factory building with wood floors, 12-14 ft ceiling with some piping above. 16' wide by 40' long with a walled–off office within the back of this space. Download floor plan by clicking on pdf symbol at top right of page.
