Call to Artists!

Check out this opportunity posted by Clemmons Family Farm:

Clemmons Family Farm joyfully announces our call to multimedia visual artists and hip hop artists for a new artist-in-residence program called UnderWATER, UnderGROUND . The purpose of this program is to creatively lift up the underrepresented past, present, and future voices and experiences of the peoples of the African diaspora who reside or resided in the Lake Champlain Basin area (parts of Vermont, New York, and Quebec).

This program will support two artists- who will be selected by a jury - to research, learn about, and create new work about some of the untold histories, cultures, and geology of the area. Each artist-in-residence will receive:

  • A stipend of $7,500 paid in installments over the period of the residency (September 2023 – December 2024);
  • 20 overnight stays in the historic Barn House apartment on the Clemmons farm;
  • Mileage reimbursement or paid transportation for field trips to the above-listed field trip locations, including paid hotel for overnight stay in Mystic, Connecticut;
  • Art supplies and equipment for the artist’s creative work for this residency program;
  • Free studio space on the Clemmons farm for their creative works through the duration of the residency, with access to wireless internet and library;
  • Professional development mentoring and support in research techniques and library skills;
  • Administrative and logistical support to coordinate field trips, community engagements;
  • Professional services to support the development and installation of a multi-media exhibit of the AiR’s creative work at the Clemmons farm;
  • and media and promotional services related to the UnderWATER, UnderGROUND residency program.
