Call for Sound Artists in Residence 2022:
Get a Plant!?

The Media Arts Committee invites proposals for sound art compositions under the theme of “self care.” At a time where the concept of “self care” can be resold and packaged in a way that can feel exploitative or coercive, how do you respond to these pressures? What is self care for you? How do social, familial, and cultural influences impact your choices and perceptions of self care?


The selected proposals will ultimately result in a five-week virtual residency with the completion of stereo compositions that will be presented as a group compilation of all artists selected for this call.
