CATAPULT | Stay Home Artist Residency

The CATAPULT Stay Home Artist Residency provides opportunities for 24 cultural practitioners from the English, French, Spanish and Dutch speaking Caribbean to be supported while safely remaining in their studios/work-spaces, each of whom will receive a $3,000 USD stipend to produce work over a two-month period. The programme targets individuals exploring the critical key themes of culture, human rights, gender, LGBTQIA+, and climate justice which are so relevant to the region.

Using this residency as an opportunity for the growth of their practice, the Stay Home residents will also share blog posts bi-monthly about the work they are doing. This blog will facilitate artists’ reflections on their process and practice while documenting the experience for both their benefit and that of the wider public. The blog will be hosted on the CATAPULT online platforms.
