Eastside International’s AIR Program
Application fee: $50 USD
Currently, the self-structured residency lasts from 1, 2, or 3 months and includes a bedroom and adjoining studio for contemporary visual artists to make work, connect with other artists, spaces, galleries, curators, and others and explore Los Angeles.
Current residency fees are set at $1,600 US per month for residencies beginning 2018.
Eastside International does not currently offer any kind of financial aid or stipends to residents. All funding is the responsibility of the applicants. We can, on request, provide documentation to applicants or funders in regards to receipt of application materials and/or an applicant’s acceptance to the AIR program.
On The Move is a helpful tool for artists seeking funding for international residencies and projects, with funding guides for Europe, Asia, and more posted free at their site.
A community of artists live and work in Eastside’s facility, and the space has been in continual artist-run operation for over a decade. The AIR accommodations are for working artists; the facility is operated out of a converted industrial space on the grounds of the Brewery Art Colony. The AIR program at Eastside is artist-run, semi-communal, co-ed, and cooperatively operated with common areas, kitchen, WC and other facilities shared by the 4 resident artists, live-in co-director, the other co-directors, and studio renters at the building. The full time resident artists, including the directors, all financially contribute to the costs of running Eastside International and all work is entirely volunteer based. The costs for the AIR are kept as low as possible and help cover all the maintenance, overhead, and exhibition programming, and are shared by the artist-directors and studio rentals.
Eastside provides a space for the making of art and participating in the Los Angeles contemporary art community and is not recommended for artists expecting luxury accommodations, preferential treatment, or a vacation resort experience.
