McColl Center annually awards residencies to approximately eighteen artists. Regional, national, and international artists are selected through a combination of open applications, invitations, and solicited nominations. The Artist-in-Residence Program is open to artists working in architecture, drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, film, video, new media, design, music, theatre, social practice, community organizing, urban agriculture, culinary arts, or interdisciplinary practices. Because McColl Center has an explicit mission to advance communities—to engage diverse public audiences in dialog about contemporary issues facing Charlotte and other urban environments and to facilitate creative actions for positive social impact—special attention is given to applicants whose work poses urgent questions about society or promotes civic consciousness and reciprocal exchange with community members. The residency program provides a space for creative inquiry and exploration among a dynamic group of artists, thinkers, and practitioners. Residencies vary in length, from one to three months, in the fall and spring seasons.
● Minimum 21 years of age
● Matriculating students are not eligible.
● Artist-in-Residence Program: Past artists-in-residence of McColl Center should wait five years before applying for another residency. Artists are limited to two residencies at McColl Center.
● Healthcare and Healing Program: Past artists-in-residence of McColl Center are not eligible.
Collaborations and Collectives
Artist collaborators and collectives must submit a single application with appropriate work samples that show artwork made by the group, not its individual members. The submitted application must indicate the primary contact person; in an attached PDF, list information about the group member(s): first and last name, email, phone, address, website (if available), and bio. In the application, clearly specify the number of collaborators and the group’s workspace needs. Due to housing limitations, individual condominiums will not be provided for each group member; collectives must share housing.
McColl Center welcomes artists from around the world. A working knowledge of English is helpful; we are unable to provide an interpreter for applicants who speak little or no English.
Partners and children of artists-in-residence may stay in the provided condominium during the residency term. However, partners will not be allowed to use McColl Center workspaces, facilities, equipment, or materials. Artist couples must apply individually; if both are accepted, each will be offered a studio. Pets are not allowed in the condominiums or studios. Exceptions may be made for registered service pets.
Facilities and Equipment
McColl Center is a 30,000-square-foot facility with common-use wood, sculpture, ceramic, darkroom, and printmaking studios, a media lab, and a communal kitchen. Artists-in-residence have 24-hour access to the facilities, and McColl Center staff are available for assistance during weekday business hours (9 a.m.–۵ p.m.). A jeep, a van, and a flatbed truck are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
All artists-in-residence are required to participate in at least one public program or volunteer opportunity, onsite or offsite, during their residencies. The type and scope of the programs will be mutually designed and agreed upon by the artist and McColl Center’s Artistic Director. Significant social-practice projects are reserved for special initiatives or alumni who have already spent time incubating their ideas in Charlotte and connecting with community members.
With the belief that artists add immeasurable value to everyone’s quality of life, McColl Center makes every effort to generously support artists-in-residence, through a combination of stipends, free housing, and other offerings. While residency programs are not yet included in the published research of Working Artists and the Greater Economy (W.A.G.E.), McColl Center tries to follow the artist fees recommended by that advocacy group. The living allowance and materials stipend provided by McColl Center to the artists-in-residence is based on the average cost of living for a single adult in the city of Charlotte: $30,485 annually, or $2,540 monthly, according to a 2015 report from the Economic Policy Institute. Average cost-of-living calculations are highly subjective, and McColl Center’s total operating budget varies from year to year, which may cause the artist fees to fluctuate accordingly.
Artists-in-residence with Carolina HealthCare System (CHS) must consent to a background check and share recent medical records. Immunizations are required for artists to work in some areas of the hospital.
