RÉSIDENCE: Women’s Artist Residency at MAWA, Winnipeg

Women’s Artist Residency at MAWA, Winnipeg, Canada (Deadline: June 29th, 2012, 4pm)

Next deadline June 29, 2012, 4pm for residencies taking place between May 1 – October 31, 2013

MAWA is offering our urban, loft-style apartment to women visual artists living outside of Winnipeg for residencies of 2-4 weeks in duration. Applicants can use this space and time for research, reflection, networking and/or production.

We will provide free accommodation.The MAWA apartment is fully furnished and includes a kitchen, a bathroom with shower, a double bed, a double futon/couch and a designated parking space. All linens and cooking utensils are provided. The apartment is located on the second floor of 611 Main Street in downtown Winnipeg. Sadly, it is a walk-up and is not wheelchair accessible.
MAWA’s apartment is a clean space that is not conducive for painting and many forms of sculpture. However, we will work with you and other Winnipeg art centres to help you gain access to the facilities and resources you need. These could include a rough studio, printmaking, video and darkroom facilities, or introductions to likeminded artists and curators.

While at MAWA, we ask that you present your work to our members in a form of your choice (screening, talk, performance, showcase of work-in-progress, etc.). In return, we will pay you a $300 artist fee.
Artists at all stages of their careers are encouraged to apply. Equal consideration will be given to emerging and established artists. Rural Manitoba artists are especially encouraged. Imagine an urban retreat!

Applications must be received by mail, courier or email by June 29 at 4 pm, and should include:
*a cover letter saying why you would like time in the MAWA apartment (goals, rationale)
*a detailed description of what you will need while you are here (access to other facilities or equipment requested)
*first choice of preferred dates; second choice of preferred dates (including start and end dates), between May 1 and October 31, 2013
*an artist’s c.v.
*up to 20 images on CD as jpgs, 72 dpi (please do not embed in a program such as PowerPoint)
*up to two videos on playable DVD, in Quicktime or as a web link
*a stamped, self-addressed envelope for the return of your materials if applicable

If applying on line:
Please format your application so that the text documents are in one PDF file. We ask that on-line applicants send their images un-embedded, as jpegs. This way we can compile all the images into a slide show for the jury to view, without having to open files and folders. Please send your images as jpegs, no larger than 72dpi at 1024 X 768 pixels.

In conceiving of this residency program, MAWA hopes to increase dialogue between our geographical community—Winnipeg—and the art world beyond; to create networking opportunities for women artists; and to provide an oasis in which women artists can do whatever they need to do in order to move their practices forward.

Please send applications to:
