The Winchester-based Peter Bullough Foundation announces the launch of its Interdisciplinary Artist Residency Program. Through these residencies, the foundation hopes to support emerging artists and scholars with diverse backgrounds and interests, and create a community that elevates voices that are underserved, including those of the LGBTQIA2S+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and/or Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Two-Spirit) community. The program provides month-long residencies for emerging artists and scholars working in the following disciplines: architecture, literature, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, music, composition, playwriting, screenwriting, poetry, theatre and the visual arts.
Fall residencies take place on a rolling basis from August through December, and supply studio and living space, as well as a small financial stipend, for emerging artists while they pursue their craft. Each awarded residency period is four weeks long and is shared with one other artist in residence. The application deadline for fall 2021 residencies is April 30, 2021.
