Yaddo, AiR

February 5, 2016

WHO:

Artists who qualify for Yaddo residencies are working at the professional level in their fields. An abiding principal at Yaddo is that applications for residency are judged on the quality of the artist’s work and professional promise. Yaddo accepts approximately 200 artists each year.

Yaddo encourages artists of all backgrounds to apply for admission. Yaddo does not discriminate in its programs and activities against anyone on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, ancestry, disability, HIV status, or veteran status.

Artists enrolled in full-time graduate and undergraduate programs are not eligible to apply to Yaddo.

WHAT:

Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, NY, offers residencies to professional creative artists from all nations and backgrounds working in one or more of the following media: choreography, film, literature, musical composition, painting, performance art, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and video. Artists may apply individually or as members of collaborative teams of two or three persons. They are selected by panels of other professional artists without regard to financial means. Residencies last from two weeks to two months and include room, board, and studio.

There is no fee for residency. Yaddo’s nonrefundable application fee is $30, to which is added a fee for media uploads ranging from $5 to $10, depending on the discipline. Application fees must be paid by credit card. Funds exist to provide limited financial aid to artists, based on need. Only individuals who have already been invited for visits may apply for financial assistance. Specific instructions and an application form are included with each letter of invitation.

WHEN:

January 1, for residencies starting May 1 of the same year, through February of the following year. August 1, for residencies starting late October of the same year through May of the following year. The application portal will open June 1 for the August 1 deadline.
