We are pleased to announce the opening of our application period for the Pink Noise Projects (PNP) Summer Studio Program (also referred to as our studio series), which will run from June 1st – July 31st, 2022. Applicants can apply for PNP’s month-long Summer Studio Program, utilizing our gallery space to advance projects, research, or other types of creative activity. There are 2 studio series slots available: one is available for the month of June 2022, and the other is available for the month of July 2022.
Studio series residents will have full access to our gallery space in the Rollins Building at 319 N. 11th Street, Philadelphia, PA for their approved studio series duration, which includes Wifi, support from PNP collective members, and proximity to all that the Callowhill neighborhood has to offer. Applicants accepted as residents into PNP’s Summer Studio Program will also be invited to participate in an exhibition opportunity in PNP’s regular yearly exhibition schedule, within one year of their completed Summer Studio Program.
The past two years have affected every single person on the planet, in ways that we’re all still struggling to comprehend. PNP’s Summer Studio Program will enable our collective to gift our gallery to makers to allow space for reflection, investigation, and renewed creative output. We wish to recognize the struggle of the past two years, which continues to affect us all, and create new opportunities for creativity, connection, and contemplation.
Successful applicants are responsible for bringing in all of their own materials and equipment and leaving the space as they found it. Summer Studio Program residents may use the space as an incubator for new work, a place to continue to work on existing or in-progress bodies of work, a space to invite guests for studio visits, or as a setting for small group gatherings to celebrate your work. We have found that past artists-in-residence have enjoyed utilizing our space to advance their work and ideas.
Those eligible to apply include visual artists working in any medium, writers, curators, and anyone who considers themselves a creative thinker and producer.
