You’ve Got Questions About the BoxJelly/fishcake Artist-in-Residence Program. We’ve Got Your Answers
How do I apply for the BoxJelly+fishcake Artist-in-Residence program?
To apply for the Artist-in-Residence Program, jump over here and submit an application by December 31st 2017!
What are the dates for next season’s Artist-in-Residence Program?
We are currently accepting applications for all terms through midnight on December 31, 2017 for the following terms:
Spring (February 1 – April 30, 2018)
Summer (May 1 – Aug 30, 2018)
Fall (September 1 – November 30, 2018)
Who will be deciding on the submissions?
All applications will be evaluated by a panel of creatives from BoxJelly and fishcake.
Is there a fee to apply?
Is there an artist’s stipend?
Nope, sorry; however, you do get a terrific space.
How big is the space?
About ~150 sq ft or so.
What do you mean by “clean studio space”?
It does not refer how neat you are! The larger space is shared with designers and peeps who work on computers, so this means no painting, wet media, or materials that give off toxic fumes.
What is the age requirement to be a resident?
Residents must be 18 years or older.
What hours can we work on our projects?
Residents have 24/7 access to the space.
Is there a minimum weekly time commitment at BoxJelly? Am I allowed to travel while in Hawaii?
In order to make the best of this opportunity, we recommend that residents work from BoxJelly at least four days per workweek. Residents are expected to manage their time and workflow to ensure they are able to meet program milestones, but travel is absolutely encouraged!
Do I need to be a U.S. citizen to apply?
We accept applications from many countries around the world, and are working at broadening our program all the time. If you are outside the United States and are interested in a residency, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Does the residency program provide residents with visas?
The Artist-in-Residence program does not provide residents with visas, so residents must arrange their own visas and should enter the United States as visitors. We can, however, provide residents with an invitation letter describing the nature of the relationship that the Artist-in-Residence has with us and explain the reason for the visit. We’ve found that these letters can be useful for residents when entering the U.S., but are in no way intended to replace a visa.
Do you provide residents with transportation to Hawaii?
No. Residents must make their own transportation arrangements to and from O’ahu, Hawaii.
Where should I stay during my residency, and how should I get there?
We do have one shared studio apartment that is available for our residents to rent; otherwise, our residents coordinate their own travel arrangements and accommodations. Please arrange your housing and travel well in advance, or budget accordingly to stay in temporary accommodations (hotel or hostel) upon your arrival. You might consider visiting www.airbnb.com or www.honolulu.craigslist.com to find temporary housing or sublets.
