Fellowships will be awarded in three distinct categories:
The Research Fellow: will make a minimum of five additions to the Wave Farm Radio Art Archive. The archive is an online resource and a broadcast series on Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM. It aims to identify, coalesce, and celebrate historical and contemporary international radio artworks made by artists around the world, created specifically for terrestrial AM/FM broadcast, whether it be via commercial, public, community, or pirate transmission. The Fellow will prepare audio with introductions and back announcements for broadcast, as well as written work descriptions and artist biographies.
The Community Engagement Fellow will design and lead a multi-session workshop (or listening series) with WGXC programmers and interested members of the public. Recent Fellowship community engagement examples include: The Subliminal World: Intuitive, Stochastic, and Supernatural Sound-making with Tyler Maxin, delay, relay, feedback, loop: an Audio Exchange Network Workshopwith José Alejandro Rivera, Radio Deprogramming with Andy Stuhl, and the Radio as Collaborator with Lia Kohl.
The Arts Writing Fellow is a critic and/or curator who will select three artists/projects from Wave Farm’s Residency Program now in its 20th year. The Fellow will produce one essay about the selected artists’ residency work, which may include artist interviews. The essay will frame the projects within the context of the transmission art. And, as a part of a new partnership, the critic and/or curator’s research will be considered for publication in the sound studies journal, Resonance: The Journal of Sound and Culture, Published by the University of California Press.
A fellowship stipend of $2,000 will be provided to each Fellow.
