TILT Institute for the Contemporary Image

TILT’s Artist in Residence Program

TILT Institute for the Contemporary Image in partnership with The Photographer’s Green Book (PGB) invites artists to submit applications for our Artist-in-Residence (AIR) Program 2022 – 2023 cohort. The AIR program assists talented, self-directed, and committed artists who are advancing contemporary photography through innovative mediums by providing access to high-end digital facilities/equipment, professional technical assistance, educational training, and financial support. Our hope is to create a transformative experience that enriches an artist’s practice as they engage with the TILT community.

Since August 2021, we embarked upon an extensive assessment of how inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility exists within our institutional framework. We asked PGB, a resource for lens-based artists and makers who are committed to advancing social justice within the field, to help facilitate this process, resulting in the creation of several new initiatives. Please visit the Community Agreement section of the TILT website to learn more about our DEIJ (diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice) efforts and the integral role PGB has played as a thought partner throughout this endeavor.

Applications are accepted beginning Thursday, July 14, 2022 through Sunday, September 11, 2022 at 11:59pm. Selected artists will be notified the week of September 19, 2022.

AIR Program cohort will consist of the following:

Selected artists receive:

$1,000 travel/housing stipend for artists living outside of the Philadelphia metro area

Each individual residency is a 4-week consecutive term, however there is flexibility regarding when the session occurs. All residencies must be completed between October 3, 2022 – June 30, 2023. AIR Program recipients will be required to work collaboratively with TILT to design 1 public program.

Support for the AIR Program is made possible by the Joy of Giving Something Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
