We are looking for folks that will truly be leveraging the tooling we have here at Pier 9, touching on anything from the test kitchen all the way through to the 3D printing and CNC lab. Our AiRs are very much the core users of our workshop and have full reign to the tools we have accumulated under one roof. They will also get the opportunity to rub elbows with various other members of Instructables and Autodesk staff who frequent the workshop to create some of their own fun and innovative projects.
Artists interested in a residency should complete an online application and are strongly encouraged to submit examples of their work as published Instructables. In addition, applicants should send their curriculum vitae, and any supporting portfolio materials to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be processed on a rolling basis and residencies will be awarded as they become available.
*** All candidates must first document a project that you have done and publish at least 1 instructable before we will review your application. This will allow you to familiarize yourself with the process of publishing your work through instructables and also lets us know that you will be excited to share what you do with our community.***
Standard residencies will last for approximately three to six months, with the program supporting up to 12 residents at any given time. AIR's will receive a monthly $1,500.00 USD stipend to cover their expenses, as well as an allowance for project materials. Residents will work primarily at the Pier 9 Workshop, however, residents are not limited to these areas and are encouraged to seek additional project resources when appropriate.
All AIR's must be at least 18 years old, US citizens, or visitors from another country who are responsible for making their own visa arrangements. AIR's are responsible for finding their own transportation to, and housing in the San Francisco Bay area. Please send questions and comments to email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your interest in this program.
