Program Overview

Since its inception, Planet’s Artist in Residence Program has welcomed artists who work across a wide range of themes and mediums. Their work takes many forms and always inspires new ways of understanding our changing planet, making and encountering art, and fostering our collective stewardship of the Earth.

Each residency lasts for three months, during which time the Artist in Residence (AiR) is given access to select Planet data and resources and provided with a $2,000 USD stipend.

The residency is designed to be fun and productive. AiRs are encouraged, though not required, to think of ways to engage the Planet community in their work, and many artists have been invited by various Planet teams to participate in dialogues and observe projects.

Due to COVID-19, Planet’s Artist in Residence Program will be a virtual-first program in 2021.

Each residency includes the following elements:

  • Introductory presentation: A virtual introductory portfolio presentation is made by each artist in the first week of the residency.
  • Documentation: Participating artists document their process and workflow with photographs, notes, and Planet community blog posts, and archive their final works for the collective AiR portfolio.
  • Cultural participation: Artists are invited to be an active part of our organizational culture, and are invited to virtual events, launch parties and colloquia.
  • Final Presentation: A virtual event showcasing and explaining the final works produced, artist process, and workflow.

How to Apply:

Each applicant is requested to fill out the online application form and submit the following:

  • CV or resume of experience
  • Portfolio of relevant works, or website (12 - 20 pieces, typically)
  • A letter of intention/project proposal (1-2 Pages)

Applications are reviewed regularly and candidates are typically notified of the selection process outcome 4-6 weeks before the residency start. Our Residency Schedule is listed in our application portal.
