Society of Arts and Crafts’ Artist in Residence Program

Society of Arts and Crafts’ Artist in Residence Program

Ongoing Opportunity

The Society of Arts and Crafts is excited to support an Artist in Residence Program, inaugurated in 2016. This program is designed to give craftspeople an opportunity to work in our studio and offers a unique experience to explore Boston’s diverse cultural and historical offerings. Artists demonstrating their work to guests enlivens the gallery and offers the public exciting opportunities to examine material and technique in a more direct and intimate way. Through this program, the Society continues to support craftspeople and educate the public about the power of craft, and this new initiative furthers the mission in an exciting and engaging way. Please be advised that applicants must be working in craft disciplines; wood, ceramics, glass, metal, fibers.

The space allows us to host low-noise, low-mess methods that do not require large power tools or could be dangerous to the public, but they are open to finding solutions for exciting opportunities. A $750 honorarium is provided. At this time, they cannot provide housing or transportation. The residency period is three months. The Society reads applications on a rolling basis.

In return for 400 sq. ft. of studio space with natural and overhead lighting and a stipend, the Artist in Residence will engage with guests for approximately 24 hours a week while we are open to the public. The artist is expected to work with the Exhibition Associate to present at least two public programs during their residency. Examples include but are not limited to: a workshop, demonstration or artist lecture. 

The Society is are able to provide solid tables on wheels, chairs, and access to Society’s and staff’s areas. Artists are to provide their own tools and supplies.
