RAIR is a non-profit arts organization uniquely situated within a construction and demolition recycling center in Northeast Philadelphia. RAIR’s residency program provides artists on-site access to recovered materials and a studio space to produce work. The RAIR workspace includes a large project space, wood shop equipment, metalworking facilities, access to the waste stream for materials, and a material storage area. Artists-in-residence receive attentive support from RAIR’s staff who act as liaisons between the artist and the recycling facility. In addition to providing artists on-site access to recovered materials, construction equipment, and a fully-equipped studio space, RAIR’s residency program offers artists the opportunity to use the entire 3.5-acre facility as an expansive project space for the development and presentation of ambitious experimental work. 


Applications for 2019 residencies will be open from August 1–October 31, 2018. 

Deadline is October 31, 2018 at 11:59pm. 

Artists will be notified by January 1, 2019.
