ProjectSpace Residency

We are now accepting applications for ProjectSpace Residency at Basin Arts for projects occurring in 2023!

ProjectSpace Residency is a three-month residency allowing artists to dive deeper into the creation process while allowing the process to become visible to the community as the work unfolds into a full exhibition. Artistic collaboration and experimentation are highly valued and prioritized. We seek to support projects that are multi-disciplinary (visual art, dance, performance art, film, spoken word, and more) and we strongly encourage applications that include more than one participating artist.

Applications are due by 11:59pm CST October 16, 2022

Crit Night invites a selection of artists from all mediums and disciplines to share what they are currently working on to receive thoughts and feedback from peers. This monthly gathering builds a stronger, more diverse and visible artist community and also exposes the variety and depth of talent among us. Come prepared to listen, share and learn from one another. Each month features three artists and one guest critic from the broader arts community.
