Applications are now being accepted at the Studios for fall/winter residencies!
The Studios offers self-directed professional development residencies for artists and writers ranging from 1-8 weeks.
This time around, in addition to the usual benefits — great studio space and housing, one group meal per day, access to MASS MoCA‘s exhibitions and to Makers’ Mill (a printmaking and fiber arts makerspace located a short walk from the Studios), and one-on-one professional development coaching — we’ll be inviting certain applicants to participate in “financial wellness” residency sessions, with extra financial aid to minimize the residency fee, a $500 travel/meals stipend, and workshops and coaching to get your financial house in order. This is made possible with the support of a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Application Deadline: July 6, 2017 11:59pm. There is no application fee.

The Boschen Fund for Artists supports emerging artists or artists experiencing a significant change of direction in their work. Funding supports these artists to work alone or in collaboration with other artists in the creation of new work. The Fund supports artists as they advance to the next level of their development or in the presentation of their work in innovative ways. The core belief of the Boschen Fund is that the world is made a better and more humane place if artists have the resources they need to create work and make it available to the public and have the opportunity to think in new ways about their future as artists. The Boschen Fund seeks, in its modest way, to help create a more innovative and nurturing climate for artists in the Berkshire Taconic region by making grants available at important points in an artist’s career. While the focus of the fund remains on individual artists, it also accepts proposals from organizations in the region that commission artists or provide artists with new opportunities to work or present their work to new audiences.
Submission Deadline: July 15, 2017
