artist residency program

NEXT AVAILABILITY JUNE-AUGUST 2013 –  If you are interested please get in touch.

Concord offers a bedroom and studio space in a converted Warehouse in Cypress Park. Through the residency program the incoming artist will gain access to a community of artists, arts professionals and partnered organizations across Los Angeles.

The length of the residency is six months to a year (with flexibility.) The resident will be invited to exhibit within or utilize the gallery space in whatever way they like – this can be a show of their own work, or a curated show, or some kind of interdisciplinary project such as a lecture series or workshop. The possibility of organizing multiple events/shows depends on scheduling.

The successful applicant will be enthusiastic to join Concord’s vibrant community and will happily engage in the collective process of organizing our space. What this means is that we would like the incoming resident to be an active member in our community, share in decisions about programming and curating events, aid in fundraising and contribute to conceptual planning and the overall development of the space.

The fees for the residency program are $750 per month with a small commitment to the space in time, skills or ideas; the residency fees includes a large bedroom, studio space, utilities, wifi and access to facilities such as our mobile studio.

We prefer applications in person (all disciplines welcome) – to schedule a meeting or to find out more please contact concord1010@gmail.com

Concord is an experiment in building and bridging community through art, narrative and ideas. It is a warehouse, a multi-functional space that changes depending on what it is supporting – like a platform its goal is to connect and combine, whether ideas, people, objects or dreams.

A few things about Concord are stable: it is a home and studio for collaborating artists, it is an exhibition and project space that supports emerging artists and experimental initiatives, it is a creative drop-in centre for the underprivileged neighborhood, Cypress Park and it is an evolving story that accounts for the many things that go unaccounted for.
