We are also currently accepting applications for our Residency for Regional Emerging Artists. 

Each summer two artists are selected for one-month residencies at PPAC.  Theresidencies support talented, self-directed emerging artists, living in the Philadelphia region, in realizing their goals and visions.

This residency offers artists the time to focus on their work, cultivate new ideas and understand their process, while also providing financial and collegial resources to create work. Participants in the residency program are expected to use their month to pursue their own projects: photographing in the area, printing, scanning or editing for a specific project or book, etc.  

Each month-long residency includes a $4,000 stipend, staff support to assist with projects, and extended access to PPAC’s digital lab.   
Please click here for more information, applicant eligibility and application instructions.  Application Deadline for 2013 is April 19th.
