Rising: Climate in Crisis Residencies at A Studio in the Woods

Rising: Climate in Crisis Residencies at A Studio in the Woods invites artists to be agents of change in guiding our collective understanding, response, and vision as we shape our shared future. 

Artists play a vital role in facing the climate crisis. We encourage artists to guide our collective response to this challenging issue while bringing wisdom, integrity, optimism, and even humor to intentional projects seeking transformation for our species and our planet. Southeast Louisiana’s land and inhabitants are continually challenged by the effects of environmental degradation. As sea levels and temperatures rise, our landscape acts as a microcosm of the global environment. We look for ways to reimagine our interactions with our shifting urban and natural ecosystems. Rising Residencies provide artists with time, space, funding, and staff support to foster critical thinking in the creation of new works – igniting our imaginations while illuminating our challenges and inspiring solutions.

We are open to artists of all disciplines who have demonstrated an established dialogue with environmental and cultural issues. We ask artists to describe in detail how our unique region will affect their work, propose a public component to their residency, and suggest ways how they will engage with the local community.

Proposals are due April 10, 2023 and residencies will be awarded by June 1, 2023.

Direct questions to Cammie Hill-Prewitt at info@astudiointhewoods.org.
