Applications Open for Artist Residency with Indy Convergence




Join Indy Convergence for the 12 annual residency!

April 27-May 6 (participants must be available for the entire 10 day program)

This program was imagined and designed to be an annual event to give artists time, space, and materials to develop their own projects alongside their peers. This year they are adding scientists into the mix. They feel that both scientists and artists understand what it means to truly explore an idea and practice what it means to collaborate. In 2022,  they’ll push our participants to think further outside their usual scope of work to consider the best ways to share research with the public, how to accurately and effectively incorporate research into artistic works, and how creativity can thrive in studios and labs.

This program has been called “an artistic bootcamp.”  The days are long. You will feel tired and vulnerable. You might doubt your work one day, but make an incredible discovery the next. That’s why they’re there—for participants to explore, fail, and try again; to build relationships and keep creating. The program hosts half Indianapolis and half out-of-town participants to infuse our city with new ideas and to share our own Indianapolis culture with the national arts scene.

Indy Convergence provides the following for residency participants.

  • $1,200 Stipend
  • Travel stipend for out of town participants
  • Housing for out of town participants
  • Small stipend for Side Projects
  • Studio access
  • Daily warm-up classes
  • Connect with over 150 previous residency participants
  • Opportunity to travel to our sister locations in London, Ontario or Jacmel, Haiti

Indy Convergence is dedicated to creating a holistic, inclusive environment and welcomes applications from creators of all artistic and scientific genres, races, ethnicities, abilities, socio-economic statuses, and genders.

The 2022 residency is presented in collaboration with the daVinci Pursuit and generously funded by the Allen Whitehill Clowes Charitable Foundation.
