Aurora PhotoCenter + Herron Residency Application Open



The APC + Herron Residency, a collaboration between Aurora PhotoCenter and Herron School of Art and Design/IUPUI, offers a two-week intensive work period in the Herron darkroom facility and studios. Priority for the residency will be given to projects that require the use of a world-class, traditional black-and-white darkroom facility. To read more about the Herron School of Art Photography Department’s darkroom facility, click here.

The residency includes a $2,000 stipend*, darkroom access with basic chemistry** supplied, and a place to stay. Artists are expected to manage their own work schedules and goals. During the residency, interaction with the local arts community, or public talks or performance, will be encouraged and facilitated, but not required. Residents will be asked to give an online talk about their residency experience at a mutually-agreed upon time after the residency.

The residency is open to all artists working in photography or photo-based media. Artists from any country or region may apply; artists are responsible for travel to and from the residency.

* Collaborative projects will split the $2,000 stipend.
** Please inquire about specific chemistry supplied.
