2020 AIRIE Application Info Session at Bakehouse Art Complex
May 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join Artists in Residence in Everglades (AIRIE) for an application and information session about the 2020 AIRIE Application program and process. AIRIE directors Deborah Mitchell and Sarah Michelle Rupert will discuss the residency program and detail the application process, answering general and specific questions from Bakehouse residents as well as the general public.
Artists, writers, choreographers, composers and scholars from around the world are invited to apply for the 2020 AIRIE opportunity. In partnership with the Everglades National Park, AIRIE operates a live/work residency with a mission to support and enhance the arts and cultural heritage of the Everglades subtropical wilderness. Artists live, work and create in the Everglades for one-month periods, occupying a small apartment inside the park and interacting at different levels with AIRIE, Park representatives and the public.
Residents are provided a $1000 mini-grant from AIRIE, a furnished, air-conditioned studio apartment inside the park, 24/7 access to the over 1.5 million acres of Everglades and are introduced to park rangers, scientists, biologists, artists, cultural and community leaders that enhance their understanding of the unique and fragile ecosystem of the Everglades.
Residency experiences are tailored to the interests of each individual artist, creating opportunities for independence and solitude, as well as interaction, collaboration and public engagement as each artist desires.
