Applicants are assessed through reference to six criteria:

  1. Have an engagement with the wider contemporary context of their practice, have a vision for the development of their work.
  2. Be prepared to retreat! Event Horizon is a private wilderness and residents do not usually overlap for significant amounts of time, if indeed at all. Residents usually work alone or with their partners and/or assistants.
  3. Show how work space at Event Horizon Residency will benefit their practice.
  4. Show willingness for interaction with the Greek community.
  5. Be prepared to share work on social media during and after the residency.
  6. Be generous! Event Horizon studio facilities are free of charge and are offered to anyone who can complete the criteria. The residency is heavily subsidized by Julienne and donations are welcome toward the continued maintenance of the studio space.

    Note 1: Applicants who are enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs are ineligible for a residency and therefore cannot apply. Doctoral candidates who have finished all coursework may apply.

    Note 2: Event Horizon residency is for particularly for self-sufficient, serious-minded individuals who are deeply committed to their practice, people who can respect the privilege of time and space. Applicants are not invited to come to Event Horizon for a holiday!

    We are all witness to the devastation of the environment by rich and poor human activity. Applicants with the fragile planet ideology are especially welcome at Event Horizon.
