The LATITUDE Residency program brings 8-10 artists into the lab annually to develop and produce their projects free of charge while receiving guidance, training and support from staff and volunteers. Artists gain access to the LATITUDE community through their day-to-day interactions, studio visits, and staff supported development of a piece of free public programming. 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 users and the wider art and photographic communities.
