Workspace Residency – Winter Session


Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Arts Center invites visiting and regional artists to apply for a residency program exploring the moving image, time-based media, and emergent technologies. This project-based residency connects artists with resources, time, and expertise to encourage the creation of new work and progress on on-going projects. Selected artists will have tailored access to equipment, technical consultations, and facilities from Squeaky Wheel, Buffalo Game Space, Buffalo Lab, and Silo City.

The facilities, gear, and expertise offered with this program lends itself to the creation of a wide variety of work including: film, video, virtual reality, game development, 3-D printing, sonic arts, and more. Participants can mix and match these benefits according to their needs. To get a sense of the possibilities offered by Silo City, you can see the following sites / videos: 12, 3, 4. Please read the attached Workspace Instructions for a list of equipment and available facilities.

Summer 2016 residents included Mary Helena Clark, Carl Elsaesser, Stella Marrs, and Eric Souther.

A two-week Workspace Residency will take place this December. A month-long session will take place in July 2017.

The Winter Session will take place between December 3rd and December 17th.

Applications are due at 11:59pm, October 11th, 2016.

Residents are awarded:

  • $750 Honorarium upon completion of the residency. Material, travel and consultation funds will also be available on a competitive basis for select applicants.
