Artists in Residence:
– are able to take the appropriate trainings a month in advance of their residency period in order to make the most of their residency
– work independently
– work onsite as much as possible to realize their project and to build community at Generator
– provide a narrative description of their project and photos of themselves and/or their past work prior to their residency, as well as a residency report and 3-10 images of their project and process one week of the completion of their residency
– present a summary of their project at a public event (COVID-19 dependent) organized by Generator alongside potential other makers scheduled up to three months after the residency (we work with all makers to find a date that works for everyone)
