Spartanburg’s HUB-BUB looking for new Artists in Residence

HUB-BUB is looking for progressive, community-minded artists who are excited about interacting with the Spartanburg community and working closely with fellow residents, the HUB-BUB staff, and volunteers. The HUB-BUB Artists-in-Residence (AiR) Program is a unique opportunity for four emerging visual artists, filmmakers, theater artists and musicians between the ages of 20-35. Artists are provided with time and space to do their work for six months in beautiful, large apartments with ample studio space located above The Showroom Gallery & Performance Hall and HUB-BUB offices.

While at HUB-BUB, each artist-in-residence will be expected to spend 20-25 hours a week working with the Spartanburg community. In addition to organizing and completing community art projects, this time includes setting up and bartending for live music, films, exhibitions and other events in The Showroom, contributing to the HUB-BUB blog, hanging art shows, helping with advertising, fundraisers and special events, and more.

Each residency runs January – June 2014 and is worth approximately $10,000, as all artists-in-residence will have rent and utilities underwritten for the full six months plus be paid a bi-monthly stipend ($600 per month, less taxes and withholdings) for their work with HUB-BUB.

Application deadline is Oct. 1, 2013. There is a $45 application fee, but if you apply before Aug. 31, use the coupon code “EarlyApp” to receive a $5 discount.
