Year Program Founded 1998
Description of Program 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.
Conditions/Public Service Requirements 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.

Selection Process/Criteria Each application review panel is different and comprises a combination of past residents, national artists and arts leaders, and/or McColl Center curatorial staff members. The selection process consists of an online review and scoring by the panelists, followed by a virtual meeting in which reviewers develop a shortlist. Reviewers are asked to consider the following criteria for each application:

● artistic excellence (exemplary creativity, innovation, or skill)
● depth of conceptual content
● evidence of current and ongoing professional practice
● strong history of exhibitions or presentations of artwork
● appropriateness for the McColl Center context

After the shortlist has been determined, reviewers will adjudicate the potential cohort’s overall diversity of medium or practice, race and ethnicity, geography, gender, and age. Finalists will be invited to take part in a short interview. Artists accepted into the residency program will then be notified.
