Windgate ITE International Residency

Research – Exploration – Collaboration

The Windgate ITE International Residency, sponsored by The Center for Art in Wood, welcomes international applicants for an 8-week, intensive summer program. Annually, the ITE jury selects one photojournalist, one scholar, five artists, and one student artist who work either solely in wood or with wood in combination with other materials. The resident fellows live and work together at the University of the Arts in downtown Philadelphia. The program encourages an open exchange of creative and technical innovations and culminates in a group exhibition of residents’ work at the Center.

We are now accepting applications from student artists, scholars, and photojournalists for 2018, and from artists, scholars, and photojournalists for 2019. Resident fellows receive a $400 weekly stipend; housing; group use of a mini-van to obtain wood and supplies; includes several public programs, field trips to artists, collectors and museums; and a modest allowance for special materials and tools.

Deadline: December 30, 2017

Applications for the Windgate ITE Fellow Student Artist are open to anyone who is currently a BFA, MFA, undergraduate, graduate, or one year out from an undergraduate or graduate program, or equivalent formal education. A reference letter from a teacher is required.

Application Process: Applications are accepted until December 30th for the next two years in question. Applicants for Artists, Photojournalists and Scholars can apply for either year or both years, as they prefer, pending the availability of unfilled positions. Applicants for Student Artist can only apply in the calendar year before their residency. Ex: Student Artists must apply by Dec. 30, 2017 for the 2018 program. 

Resident artists, except for the Student Artist, have been selected through 2018. The Center welcomes applications from photojournalists and scholars for 2018 and 2019 and from artists for the two remaining openings in 2019.
