The BDD Making Space program offers up to twenty short-term creative residencies. Each residency includes use of a space for up to four weeks duration and a small cash stipend of $1,000 to support the residency and development of the creative’s project(s). The first program was completed in 2021, and the second is now underway in 2022.
The Making Space program is simple, providing spaces for artists to work in and offering a stipend for selected creators and makers - supporting a diversity of practitioners. Creative makers/ designers across the Brunswick Design District (BDD) and from all disciplines were encouraged to apply.
The objectives of the BDD Making Space pilot program were to:
Expected outcomes of this residency are simply the development and advancement of a project related to a practitioner’s creative work.
Whether developing a grant proposal, prototyping a product or service or working on a performance or artefact, the residency should be used to develop, test and progress a project or concept. This development will be assisted by the program’s venue hosts and will be recorded in project diaries, which will serve as acquittal for the project.
While welcome, a public outcome is not necessarily expected for this program.
