Real Time & Space Residency
Real Time and Space (RTS) is comprised of 15 work-only artist studios and an artist residency program located in a former print shop in Oakland’s Chinatown. The mission of RTS is to provide a productive and participatory workspace for its members and residents by fostering opportunities for dialog, collaboration, and cross-disciplinary interaction. Our members include a wide range of artists, writers, curators, and designers. By offering a residency program open to local, national, and international cultural producers, RTS seeks to facilitate the exchange of ideas within and beyond the Bay Area artistic community. Numerous public programs such as artist talks, film screenings, and social events enhance our overall mission by supporting further opportunities for conversations to take place.
RTS is now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 RTS Residency! Last day to apply is May 1, 2018. For all the info about the RTS Residency Program and simple application, click on the following link: http://www.realtimeandspace.org/residency-2/
RTS also announces three new initiatives as part of this year’s residency; a partnership with 2727 California Street to support out of town residents with affordable housing. RTS will further expand upon a partnership with Artistes en Résidence to co-host a second exchange of a Bay Area artist and a French artist from the Auvergne region. And finally, in recognition of the scarcity of resources and opportunities for artists just starting out, RTS will reserve one of the 8 residency slots for a recent graduate of an undergraduate program or an artist without an MFA degree.
