Zygote Press is excited to offer three (3) paid residency seats to local Black, Indigenous, and People of Color art educators, artists, or creatives for our BIPOC Fellowship.
The objective of the artist in residency program is to provide artists from BIPOC communities with an opportunity to learn a variety of print techniques, including silkscreen, monoprint, relief, and RISO. Residency applicants should demonstrate an interest in sharing their knowledge with other artists through educational programming.
This program is for BIPOC artists or creatives in Northeast Ohio, who have little or no experience in printmaking and preferably some experience working in the education sector, as well as established educators and artists serving or have interest in serving the BIPOC community.
Residency focus: Art Educators or artists without printmaking experience
Residency dates: October 3 – December 12, 2022
Twenty hours of instruction with Zygote Press staff and/or Teaching Artists; Shop Orientation
Shop flat file, locker, shared studio space, tools for the duration of the residency
Work in a cohort of 3 artists in a collaborative environment for 10 weeks
An invitation to participate in Zygote’s annual members’ exhibition and sale
Zygote Community Patron Membership (value of $50) in the year of the residency, which grants access to Open Studio, and discounts on workshops and classes.
An advisory committee will review applications and make recommendations. Applicants should allow two to four weeks for the committee to make their decision.
