Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Arts Center seeks applications from artists and researchers to apply for a short-term residency exploring the moving image, time-based media, and emergent technologies. The Workspace Residency is a project-based residency for artists and researchers working in media arts hosted by Squeaky Wheel in Buffalo, NY. Available for applicants from Buffalo and across the U.S., the residency connects artists and researchers with resources, time, and studio space to support the creation of new work or to continue ongoing projects. The program is also open to residents of the Kashmir region through a partnership with the Abdul Ahad Guru Scholars Program. The Summer 2018 residency will take place August 4–August 26, 2018.

For the Artist resident, the residency program lends itself to the creation of a wide variety of work including film, video, virtual reality, game development, textile, metal and woodwork, 3D printing, sonic arts, installation, performance, and more, with access to wide range of equipment, tools, and technologies. Participants can mix and match these benefits according to their needs. For the Research residency: Artists, scholars, curators, writers, and theorists are invited to propose new or in-progress research in the area of emergent media arts practices towards the publication of critical texts, scholarly research, or production of curatorial projects. During the summer session, we will also be accepting applications for a Silo City resident, for an artist to work on and publically present a performance at Silo City on Friday, August 24, 2018.

We encourage people of color, women, queer, trans and gender non-conforming people to apply. The residency welcomes applications from both emerging and established artists and researchers.
