There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The deadline has passed and applications are now being reviewed for the Jerome Emerging Artist Residency Program taking place in August 2021. 

This program is an opportunity for early career / emerging artists living within the state of Minnesota or one of the five boroughs of New York City to participate in a supportive and inspiring residency environment that empowers them to take risks, embrace challenges, and utilize unconventional approaches to problem-solving.

Thanks to support from the Jerome Foundation, a month-long cohort of five artists will each receive a $625/week stipend, a travel honorarium, documentation support, and more. Application deadline was Feb. 15, 2021. Selected artists, wait-list, and runners-up will be notified by April 4, 2021. 


The deadline has passed and applications are now being reviewed for the First Step Public Artist Residency Program taking place in May 2021. 

This program is an opportunity for one public artist, cultural producer, or social practitioner living and working within the state of Minnesota to deepen their practice in storytelling, cultural arts organizing, and collaborative community engagement while serving as a catalyst for social action & relationship building in rural Red Wing, MN. 

Thanks to support from the MN State Arts Board's Creative Support for Organizations program, the selected artist will receive a $4,500 stipend for the month, a $2,000 budget for production & engagement budget, a travel honorarium, documentation support and more. Application deadline was Feb. 15, 2021. The selected artist, wait-list, and runners-up will be notified by April 4, 2021.


Only applications for the Emerging Artist or Public Artist programs were accepted this year.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the residency program was partially suspended in 2020 and only proceeded for a few months with smaller groups of artists from within 100 miles of  Red Wing. As a result, nearly all of the artists selected in the 2020 application process deferred to 2021, leaving no availability in 2021 beyond the Emerging Artist and Public Artist programs. Thank you for understanding.
