NOOSPHERE ARTS’ RESIDENCY AWARD
ANNUAL DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 4
Dedicated to bringing art from elsewhere to New York, NOoSPHERE Arts’ all-volunteer team of artists and curators keeps seeking new ways to accomplish our goal: to offer the U.S. audience access to current art from other countries and to bring creative people together for artistic cross-pollination and transnational collaborations.
NOoSPHERE Arts’ current presentation platforms include Mothership NYC, a live-work space with a huge outdoor stage in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Also founded and run by NOoSPHERE Arts’ director, this community of international creatives has a complementary mission: “to support and promote artists across multiple disciplines through residencies, public shows and collaborative opportunities; build sustainable transnational artist networks; and help retain creative forces in New York City.”
In collaboration with the Mothership Crew, we are pleased to offer the annual grant program NOoSPHERE Arts Residency Award: Once a year, we provide a month-long residency free of charge to one talented international artist or curator. Selected by a committee of peers, the award winner will spend their time on board Mothership NYC developing a creative project for presentation to the NYC audience under the aegis of NOoSPHERE Arts.
Duration of residency
One month of award winner’s choice in the year after submission.
The resident stays in private living quarters in our live-work community housing 5-6 artists total.
