Artistic Development Residency

The NDSU Department of Visual Arts Artistic Development Residency Program is guided by our commitment to serve the art community by providing a variety of ways of engagement opportunity in our facilities and with studio faculty members.

This program is intended for artists who are in transition and have need for space and expertise for continued artistic growth. The program allows for time at NDSU for 4-12 months at a time. The program costs $150.00/month plus materials fee and gives you 24/7 secure access, space within your host studio, and access to the host Professor who will provide media specific expertise and critique.

Resident artists are expected to provide 6 hours per week as part of the community doing a variety of tasks, including tutoring, technical support, studio management, etc. Since space is limited we have a competitive application process:

Applications are due Dec. 1 and Feb. 1 for the upcoming semester. Rolling applications will be accepted if there is room in the program.

To apply submit the following:

• 10 examples of current studio work
• Maximum 1-page narrative about what you plan to develop during your residency
• Current CV
• List of references

Submit application to:
