Description: The Martin House Creative Residency Program is a newly established project-based residency that provides creative individuals a designated time and space to develop new works of the imagination inspired by one of the great examples of 20th century architecture. Applications are accepted in two categories: Artists (supporting the development and presentation of creative works); and Researchers (providing opportunities for writers, researchers, scholars, critics, and cultural theorists to publish texts or produce projects in various fields, specifically as they related to Frank Lloyd Wright and the Martin House). Subjects of inquiry may relate to architecture, art, art history, landscape, building and design, social history, state and local history, issues of gender, race and class, modernism, urbanism, housing and gentrification, for example.
Award: 2-4 week residency; $5,000 stipend; travel expenses up to $1,000 will be provided to residents from outside the Buffalo-Niagara region; residents will have access to Martin House collections and other local research resources.
Eligibility: Individuals in all stages of their creative practice may submit proposals from the following arts and humanities disciplines, including but not limited to architecture, design, historic preservation, literature, music, dance, theater, film, and related areas of exploration
Deadline: Applications accepted Feb. 1 – March 31, 2023.
