Alphabet City Residency

We welcome zinesters and artists of all sorts to become an Artist-in-Residence at Alphabet City.

ABOUT: We welcome all proposals related to zines, letterpress printing, works on paper, words and books. Residencies range from two – four weeks, depending on your project and proposal.  We provide space, equipment, publicity and support and offer residents a private sleeping and scheming space off the back of Alphabet City. You’ll share a vegetarian kitchen and bathroom with Alphabet City’s directors (and foster kittens).

Residents will host some sort of exhibition or launch for their project. You can also get involved with other things going on at Alphabet City and we love it when residents run a workshop or class during their stay. Don’t worry. We’ll help you organise these things.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We regret that we cannot fund your travel expenses, however if you find a grant and need supporting information about the residency or Alphabet City, we’re happy to help in any way that we can.

The Alphabet City residency was inspired in part by the residency at the Roberts Street Social Center.

DEADLINE: We have a rolling application process, though planning in advance is desirable
