The Watermill Center is calling artists from all disciplines and is now accepting applications for its 2023 Artist Residency Program. Application deadline is March 1, 2022 and accepted artists enjoy a two to four week residency on-site at the Water Mill campus, and are granted full use of the facilities to explore and expand their creative practice.

The Artist Residency Program is process-based, without the expectation or promise of a final exhibition of the work. The Center provides artists with time and space to focus on developing their practice in a communal environment that encourages experimentation. Artists-in-Residence share their creative process with the community through open rehearsals, workshops, and artist talks.

Artists-in-Residence receive access to an extensive collection of resources central to the Watermill experience including 20,000 square feet of rehearsal/design spaces and outdoor stages, a theater production archive, The Watermill Center Study Library, The Watermill Collection, and The Center’s 10-acre landscaped grounds and gardens.
