Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Arts Center seeks applications from artists and researchers to apply for a short-term residency exploring the moving image, time-based media, and emergent technologies. The Workspace Residency is a project-based residency for artists and researchers working in media arts hosted by Squeaky Wheel in Buffalo, NY. Available for applicants from Buffalo and across the U.S., the residency connects artists and researchers with resources, time, and studio space to support the creation of new work or to continue ongoing projects. For the first time, the program is also open to residents of the Kashmir region through a partnership with the Abdul Ahad Guru Scholars Program (see separate application process here). The Spring 2018 residency will take place March 2–March 18, 2018.

Selected applicants will have tailored access to facilities, equipment, technical consultation, from Squeaky Wheel, as well as our Workspace Residency partners Buffalo Game Space, Buffalo Lab, and Silo City. This residency program lends itself to the creation of a wide variety of work including film, video, virtual reality, game development, 3D printing, sonic arts, installation, performance, and more. Participants can mix and match these benefits according to their needs.

Residents will also have the opportunity to attend guest lectures from notable artists and scholars Shu Lea Cheang, Laura Kraning, and Tina Rivers Ryan (bios below). In addition, residents are provided with public opportunities to share and receive feedback for their work, and will be invited to a variety of site visits and activities exploring Buffalo’s unique communities and histories.
