Wave Farm Residency Program
The annual deadline is February 1, for residencies taking place between June and October.
Residencies: 10 days, June thru October
Artists receive a $700 artist fee.
The Wave Farm Residency program provides artists with a valuable opportunity to concentrate on new transmission works and conduct research about the genre using the Wave Farm Study Center resource library. In conjunction with their residencies, artists perform, are interviewed, and create playlists for broadcast on Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM, a creative community radio station serving over 78,000 potential listeners in New York’s Upper Hudson Valley, and international listeners online.
WGXC 90.7-FM is a program division of Wave Farm. Visit the Program link in the footer at the bottom of this page for more information about WGXC and other Wave Farm activities.

Residencies take place June through October and span 10 days, with a Friday arrival, and Sunday departure.
A $700 artist fee is made available for each residency.
The Residency Program hosts one artist at a time. Artists, which may include collaborative teams, are housed in the Wave Farm Study Center. Accommodations in the Study Center include two bedrooms (one full-sized bed each), studio workspace, kitchenette, lavatory, shower, as well as the Study Center library, WGXC 90.7-FM Acra broadcast studio, and Wave Farm offices. The Study Center is located on 29 acres in the northern foothills of Catskill Mountain Park. The property features meadows, two small ponds, and a pine forest with large walking paths. WiFi, electrical, and audio hook-ups are available throughout the bulk of the property. Please note: day visitors are welcome. Overnight guests (including family members) and pets are not permitted.
TRANSPORTATION + MEALS
Artists must pay for their own travel expenses as well as expenses related to meals during their stay. Transportation is available from the Hudson Amtrak station, the Kingston bus station, or the Albany airport, as well as local transport for groceries and supplies.
This is an international open call for proposals. Artists should either possess a significant body of past transmission-based work, or a compelling argument in support of their future work within the transmission art genre. Full-time students are ineligible; however, exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis for career artists who may have returned to school for post-graduate work.
REVIEW + NOTIFICATION PROCESS
Applications will be evaluated in a peer review panel comprised of transmission artists, past residents, and Wave Farm staff. Finalists will be contacted for phone interviews, and notification will be made in March.
