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 run by Squeaky Wheel in Buffalo, NY. Open to 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.
For the Artist residency, 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 a wide range of equipment, tools, and technologies. Participants can mix and match these benefits according to their needs. For the Researcher 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. For the Silo City residency, artists are invited to submit proposals to create and present a public performance at Silo City’s Marina A during the residency, utilizing its unique sonic, visual qualities, and/or industrial history and legacy. The Silo City residency is only available for the summer session.
