Luminary Residency Program in St. Louis. Deadline: December 31, 2013.

This is a message from The Luminary’s Residency director, Sarrita Hunn. The residency program looks interesting, especially for the part of the “extensive interaction with the landscape of contemporary art” and the “opportunities for artists to engage with the local community”… too bad they have to charge a non-refundable 25$ fee just for sending your portfolio…. but nearly everybody does it nowadays, so I will not be a spoil. Have a look for yourself….

The Luminary Center for the Arts Residency Program supports exceptional emerging artists, curators and critics engaging the world of contemporary art by providing dedicated time and a supportive working environment. The program is open to all artistic, curatorial and critical practices but uniquely supports the research, development and presentation of work that utilizes innovative forms and unconventional structures such as alternative spaces and economies, publications and writing, archives, collaborations, artist-led projects and socially engaged practices. The Luminary staff work closely with each resident to facilitate the space, knowledge and collaborative opportunities (with artists, curators, local residents and other organizations) necessary for their work. Residents are provided well-equipped private studios, housing and many opportunities for public engagement such as lectures, solo exhibitions, studio visits and workshops.

Residencies are available year-round from one week up to three months.
Applications are due Dec. 31st, 2013 for residencies in 2014.

FAQs
What expectations does The Luminary have of their artists and curators in residence?
The Luminary Residency Program participants are expected to use the time and space awarded to them and be an engaged member of The Luminary community. Opportunities for public engagement are available and a small number, such as Open Studios and lectures, may be requested. Residents are also asked to donate work in proportion to the financial support received during their residency.
Does The Luminary offer stipends, housing or grants for travel to and from the residency?

The Luminary has an evolving but finite amount of support we can offer to residents each session. International applicants and those with significant need should apply early for their intended residency to allow ample time to arrange and assist with support. The Luminary Center for the Arts has launched a capital campaign to raise funds to purchase and renovate a 13,000 sq/ft complex to serve as its new home. Please note that due to this impending move we will be unable to offer residency housing until 2013 when new housing will be available on-site.
Does The Luminary accept applications from collaborative teams?
Yes, The Luminary does accept applications from collaborative teams. Applying collaborative teams are asked to submit individual resumes or CV.
Are students allowed to participate in the residency program?

Current students may not participate in the residency program but may apply for residencies that begin after their schooling is complete.
What is the community of St. Louis like?

St. Louis has an active arts community with many galleries, DIY spaces and free museums. The Luminary is located in an active urban environment with access to public transit, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and public parks. The Luminary’s Residency Program always includes local artists and there are many options to get involved in the greater arts community. For a more in-depth view of the St. Louis art community please see Temporary Art Review’s St. Louis page: http://temporaryartreview.com/saintlouis
