Application for COLLAB Creative Residency
In the COLLAB atelier project, Embark Center and IndEd Academies join the Loudoun Arts Council to offer qualifying artists quarterly residencies in a unique studio space in Leesburg's Arts and Culture District. Visiting artists can use the space as a working studio and exhibit area and have the opportunity to engage with the public in a unique way in the heart of downtown Leesburg. In lieu of rent, IndED and Embark students will have access to their process.

Individual artists can teach, share, and work with the students in ways that suit them, but the guiding principles of instruction should be focused on process, not product, and encourage a willingness to take chances and solve problems. A key component of the project is community outreach. Artists will be responsible for communicating the overall value of art as a community creator.

Residencies will be awarded based on artists' proposals, with special consideration given to artists willing to collaborate with a studio partner on at least one project during the residency. The program is not limited to visual artists. Performers, writers, musicians, and makers are also encouraged to apply. We are particularly interested in cross-media collaborations.

COLLAB will offer four residency periods each year, Fall (September through November), Winter (December through February), Spring (March through May), and Summer (June through August). Artists are asked to work at least six hours per week during school hours, and to work with Embark and IndEd to create opportunities for students to have access to the artists' process. Projects can incorporate student involvement. Artists will be allowed to sell their artwork from the space. The LAC will promote artists' events through the arts council's website and electronic newsletter.

The space includes a bathroom and utility sink, and artists must leave the space they way they found it. Artists will be asked to sign a contract including refundable security deposit of $100 when the residency is awarded. At this point, the available space is not accessible, so applicants must be able to use stairs.
