LATITUDE welcomes approximately one artist in residence per month to the lab each year. Lab staff act as artists' consultants, technical advisors, and assistants, helping bring specific projects and bodies of work to completion. In return, artists are asked to be active as both resources and mentors to the LATITUDE community, sharing their insights and creative methods. The goal of the residency program is to further LATITUDE's mission of promoting creative collaboration between our members and the wider art and photographic communities.
LATITUDE holds an open call for residency proposals once per year. The next call will take place in the late summer/early fall of 2017, with the goal of selecting residents for 2018.
