Greenpoint-based Kickstarter is seeking NYC-based artists and creators for their fall 2019 residence program to gain mentorship on projects by staff at the company’s headquarters.
The fall 2019 Kickstarter Creators-in-Residence program runs from 9/10 – 12/13 and the deadline to apply is 7/31.
Last spring the company hosted 11 creators “to work on Design & Technology, Journalism, Art, Comedy, Publishing and Games.” More on the residency:
Launched in 2017, our Creators-in-Residence program invites NYC-based creators in the process of planning, launching, or about to fulfill a Kickstarter campaign to join us at our Brooklyn HQ for a three-month residency. Past residents have included product designer Krystal Persaud, games designer Jordan Draper, artist Nicholas O’Brien, author Ytasha L. Womack, and choreographer Raja Feather Kelly.
During the residency, each creator will pair with a staff mentor who specializes in their area of interest and will offer guidance on how to manage a Kickstarter campaign. Residents receive access to a dedicated workspace, as well as our theater, recording studio, library, meeting rooms, and kitchen. They also have opportunities to be featured in Kickstarter-produced editorial content, and are invited to attend regular workshops, talks, and performances that put them in conversation with other creators and Kickstarter staff.
