Call for Artists – Recycled Artist in Residency

Deadline December 7: RAIR offers the opportunity for artists to interface with a fully operating recycling center. Our artist studio exists only because of our cooperative relationship with the recycling center, and because of that relationship, all residents are on location as a guest. Artists are expected to be compliant and understanding of all center operations at all times.

Any artist applying to RAIR is strongly encouraged to have completed a tour of the facilities at RAIR and the recycling center before submitting an application. The environment that we offer is unique; it is often dusty and pretty rough and rugged. Because RAIR exists in a very busy operational facility, unsolicited visits and tours are not allowed. Tours will be held on every other Saturday of each month in September, October, and November. Please visit RAIR’s website to sign up for a tour: http://rairphilly.org/tour-schedule/. If you can not make it to one of our scheduled tours, please email us to set up an appointment: rair.philly@gmail.org

There are 2 residency programs for application, THE STANDARD RESIDENCY and THE BIGGIE SHORTIE. Residents of both programs are given access to Revolution Recovery’s waste stream. RAIR’s staff works closely with all residents, both while picking in the yard and in the studio.
