The Torpedo Factory Post-Graduate
Residency is a competitive program that provides meaningful support to recent,
promising MFA graduates for three months at a time in partnership with
accredited MFA programs. The program is unique for addressing the
critical post-graduate juncture in an emerging artist’s career, offering an
opportunity for professional development, and a chance to define their independent
work process outside of the academic context. Submissions are open for both graduates in the region and nationwide, provided they submit proof of their permanent residence in the area and/or commitment of contributing to the ongoing future of the DC/Maryland/Virginia arts scene.
Post-Graduate Residents receive studio space and public presentation opportunities, including participation in a culminating curated exhibition in Target Gallery, the contemporary exhibition space for the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Residents are active, equal participants in the Torpedo Factory’s unique creative community and benefit from engagement with local, national, and international artists.
Benefits: In addition to the Residency Benefits listed below, this year’s residents will now receive the additional benefit of a $500 stipend for their participation.
