Media Arts Residency Program

2018-2019 Media Arts Residency Award

Kala Art Institute provides awarded Media Arts Residency Awardees with a six-month residency with 24/7 access to Kala’s facilities, along with the opportunity to produce work in collaboration with Kala programs, a culminating exhibition in the Kala gallery, and in-house expertise for the duration of the residency. Artists working in and across video, sound, performance cinema, and installation will pilot this new program, a creative residency at Kala to create multi-media projects that culminate in Kala programming.

Awarded artists will have access to both Kala’s electronic media center and print studio. Kala’s electronic media center provides computer suites loaded with software for image, video, and sound editing, cameras, projectors, zoom sound recorders, high-quality scanners, and large-scale printers.
