RAIR is pleased to announce the open call for applications for the 2023 residency season.

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 three and a half-acre facility as an expansive project space for the development and presentation of ambitious experimental work.

We are excited to offer 2023 artists-in-residence a stipend of 1000 USD. Applicants from outside the city are eligible for housing and travel reimbursement. The jurors for this year’s open call are Christina Vassallo, Executive Director of the Fabric Workshop and Museum, Paul M. Farber, Director and Co-Founder of Monumnet Lab and artist Jean Shin. They will be selecting the 2023 artists-in-residence and providing virtual studio visits to those artists to provide critical peer feedback.

Applications for 2023 residencies opened on September 9, 2022 and will close on October 31, 2022 at 11:59pm. Applicants will be notified early next year.
