Standard Library Residency

We are seeking artists to work with for a pilot of our nascent residency program.

Some previous programming knowledge is not a requirement, but may be a determining factor for eligibility depending on the proposed project.

This residency is open to current full-time students within two years prior to completing their degree (any level).
