About the Opportunity
OVERVIEW: UHA is accepting applications for our 2025 Artist-in-Residence program! This residency will provide studio space, living quarters, and additional supports for professional artists to have the opportunity to experiment with their practice, develop their focus, and test new ideas in the unique historic district of Port Union. The UHA committee will work with selected artists to create residencies that support both the artist and the community’s development. While it is not expected that the applicant has an existing relationship with Port Union, the committee will consider both the relevancy and the feasibility of the proposal in the context of Port Union, as well as the potential for meaningful and relevant public engagement when making their selections. During the 2025 season, we are focusing on projects that relate to our FAMILY Programming. The theme FAMILY relates to and examines the inherited social structures and relationships that we form within our communities and households as we navigate community relationships within colonial and capitalist systems. It also prompts the question of how the notion of family can exist outside of colonial and capitalist conventions. Relevant concepts that will be prioritized will include work that is responsive to generational healing, heritage, chosen family, alternative economies, grief, belonging, and sustainable rural futures.
