SWgallery“In 1964, Bruce got his first 8-m m movie camera and started combining his passion for clay with a stop motion animation technique called clay animation. What started out as simple, almost crude films would soon develop into projects characterized by an almost obsessive attention to detail paired with surreal stream of consciousness stories. It is this combination that makes his work both so unique and so incompatible with mainstream culture…” continue reading on the Spaceworks Blog

Special Project Residencies in Tacoma

7 Jun
Goldfinch Album Cover

Goldfinch’s Faded Explanations Vols. 1-3 album cover

Ever wondered, “What is a ‘Special Project Residency'”? It’s free temporary space to do any number of things:  Create a piece that is too big for your current studio;  Record your next album; Hold your non-profit’s next special event; the list goes on. Or maybe you are an artist who has thought of relocating to Tacoma. Bring your ideas and creativity and check it out for 6 months!

An example of a past Special Project Residency is the band Goldfinch. From January – March 2012, they were awarded a Spaceworks space where they wrote and arranged many of the songs that would become their latest full-length record entitled, Faded Explanations: Vols. 1 – 3. (The record is available at Bandcamp and is “name your price”. Click here to listen and download it.) 

A track of Spaceworks Tacoma, Special Project Residencies offer dedicated practicing artists, community groups and organizations the chance to pursue projects and develop work in any discipline for up to six months in a temporary space. Residencies are not open to the public, except for special events or open houses determined by Spaceworks and/or the participant(s). Accommodations are not provided and the spaces are available only for work. Participants are required to ‘bring the storefront window to life’ and have active public components that help connect with the community.

The online application is easy…submit 6 images, a resume, a budget, and answer 9 questions that address these aspects of your project:
