TENEMENT MUSEUM | CALL FOR PROPOSALS | DIGITAL ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM
The Lower East Side Tenement Museum is currently accepting proposals for its Digital Artists in Residence Program (DARP). The Museum will award one virtual residency to an artist or team of artists. During the six-month residency, the artist(s) will complete an original, web-based project that explores an aspect of the contemporary immigrant experience in New York City.
The Museum provides a stipend and equipment money, as well as hosting space and promotional support. This is a virtual residency; the Museum cannot provide work space.
Proposals are due October 15, 2008.
The completed DARP project will forward the Tenement Museum’s mission to “promote tolerance and historical perspective through the presentation and interpretation of a variety of immigrant and migrant experiences on the Lower East Side, a gateway to America.”
