For the 2021–22 program, QAW will assemble a cohort of 10–15 residents who will share access to the QAW/Binch Press
Studio in Providence, RI from September 2021 through May 2022. The residency includes up to 21 days in the studio, which may be used at any time during the nine month period. Days may be consecutive or spread out, or a mix, as needed. Since 2 to 3 residents may share the QAW/Binch Studio at the same time, studio and printer use will be coordinated via a shared calendar.
Included in the residency is access to the QAW risograph printer, library, and all equipment and supplies (inks, papers, paper trimmer, etc.), as well as an unrestricted stipend of $625 awarded directly to the resident, to be used for any purpose that supports their work and/or enables them to access the residency (travel, food, rent, project supplies, etc.). This is a work-only residency (no housing provided). Residents will also have access to shared resources maintained and managed by Binch Press on an as-available basis, including silk-screening, risograph, and letterpress set-ups.
