Calling all Artists: Flint and Steel Artist Residencies

Flint and Steel are six week residencies designed to allow artists to join forces with academic partners. Artists and Tulane University faculty members will be united to inspire each other in the development of new work, to excite the public, and to ignite social change. Addressing the artists' desire to be more effective and have longer lasting impact with their outreach, these collaborations will empower the artistic practice with scholarship, student manpower and academic resources from Tulane. We ask artists to describe in detail how the opportunity will affect their work, to identify potential departmental partners, to propose a public component to their residency and to suggest ways in which they will engage with the local community.
A full description including all important dates and the application for our Flint and Steel residencies can be found here (pdf) or here (MS Word). Letters of Interest (LOI) due April 13, 2015. Finalists will be notified by email by June 1, 2015.…

Faculty Enrichment Residencies

A Studio in the Woods and the Tulane-Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental Research seek to enhance and support the scholarship and creativity of Tulane faculty and trainees by awarding one- to two-week residencies during Academic Year F2015-S2016. These residencies will provide a retreat for faculty and trainees across disciplines to work on a discrete project or scholarly pursuit that can be new or complementary to ongoing work. Applications can be made singly, though collaborative multi-discipline team applications are encouraged. This opportunity may be considered similar to an artist residency, writing fellowship or grant-in-aid. Previous grantees have utilized the retreat to analyze data, write an article, prepare for a conference or develop a new project.
