The Iris Project Residency in Echo Park, California is designed to provide artists, curators, writers, and creative thinkers from diverse backgrounds and disciplines with ample space and time to explore and push boundaries in their respective practices. We firmly believe that new ideas and perspectives emerge when creativity is not constrained by production or material exchange pressures. Our goal is for these benefits to extend beyond the residency and enrich the wider creative community. The Iris Project Residency is managed by Artist Mark Licari and Curator Kate Rosenheim and is a sponsored project of Venice Arts, a non-profit arts service organization. We are proud partners with The Ford Family Foundation, Yucca Valley Material Lab, and DucatoPrize.
Three residencies are awarded annually, with additional residencies available at a low cost. Residents are expected to cover their own travel expenses, meals, and art supplies. There are no obligations to publish, exhibit, or perform for those who receive a residency.
The Iris Project Residency provides artists-in-residence with a range of opportunities for development, engagement with the Los Angeles Art Community. If you have any queries or apprehensions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
