The Summer 2020 Residency Term Application is now open, with a deadline of November 1, 2019 at 11:59 PM.
PlySpace is an artist-in-residence program in Muncie, Indiana, that is dedicated to offering visual artists, writers, performers, designers, and other creative individuals time and space to investigate and pursue their own practices. Additionally, it serves as a platform for experimentation and provocation by catalyzing conversation and collaboration with various Muncie communities. PlySpace facilitates opportunities for residents to engage with the public through partnership and programming that is tailored to their area of interest. PlySpace is funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
PlySpace is pleased to support practitioners in a variety of creative fields and facilitate access to a wide range of media-specific equipment and facility accommodations for individuals and teams working in areas including, but not limited, to painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, glass, metals, ceramics, performance, photography, video/film, time-based media, writing, poetry, theatre, non-object based practice, and social practice. All residents will have provisional access to the Ball State University School of Art facilities, with 24-hour access to personal studio spaces.
Each resident is expected to work with a community collaborative partner and complete a community-based project while in residence. This experience is meant to benefit the resident as well as the community of Muncie. The community project proposal is part of the application process, and projects should take up 5-10 hours of time per week in residence. For detailed information about the community collaboration aspect of the program.
Selected residents will be offered one of two types of residency: a position as a PlySpace Resident or as a PlySpace Resident Fellow. The type of residency offered will be determined by the Admissions Panel and Final Selection Committee during the admissions process. All residencies include living space, studio space, a $500 travel stipend and a $500 living stipend, paid upon completion of the program. Resident Fellows are eligible for additional supply and project funding, and will work directly with Ball State University as a community partner. Please refer to the website for more information about the residency types.
Three individual artists or up to three collective applicants will be accepted for each residency term (one PlySpace Resident Fellow and two PlySpace Residents).

Residents are free to negotiate their length of stay, start dates, and end dates within this block of time. Resident Fellows must plan a stay of no fewer than 9 weeks.
