Opportunity for USA, Canada, and International artists to develop their artistic practice in a residency program at an arts center in Long Island, New York. This residency program provides artists with the opportunity to develop their craft and to critically challenge, investigate, and extend the pre-existing norms within their discipline. Educational and community programming is also scheduled throughout residencies.

The Watermill Center’s Artist Residency Program began in 2006, when The Center officially opened as a year-round facility.  The Artist Residency Program is a communal program: multiple residencies occur concurrently, with anywhere from 3-15 artists on site at a given time. Watermill provides artists with time and space to focus on developing their practice in a communal environment that encourages experimentation. Artists-in-Residence share their creative process with the community through open rehearsals, workshops and artist talks. Space at Watermill is allocated as-needed. Artists are asked to notate in their application what type of space they require (studio space, office space, rehearsal space, indoors, outdoors, etc.).

Artists-in-Residence are required to participate in In Process @ The Watermill Center, which invites the community to engage with Artists-in-Residence on select Saturday afternoons through open rehearsals, workshops, studio visits, lectures or artist talks. Workshops and other community events are strongly encouraged. Each artist is also encouraged to have an education component to their residency. Watermill staff will work with you to design an educational activity.

During the course of the residency, residents are responsible for living expenses such as food, travel to and from Watermill, production expenses such as art materials and supplies, and equipment rentals. Watermill will provide a modest reimbursement to offset these expenses. The Watermill Center provides local transportation, housing, and workspace. If the artist initiates it, The Watermill Center will supply signed letters of support for outside funding and can offer advice for potential funders to underwrite or assist.
