 OPEN CALLS

ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The SPACE residency program provides a unique working environment for emerging and mid-career artists seeking support for their practice. Visual artists, filmmakers/media artists, writers, sound artists, collaborative groups and curators who are not currently enrolled in an academic program and live outside of Maine are eligible to apply. A civically and socially engaged arts organization, SPACE strongly encourages artists who understand themselves as being outside the privilege of heteronormative, white-centric identity to apply. Preference will be given to artists whose practices engage with contemporary issues and socially relevant concepts.

INTERNSHIPS

Internships

SPACE Gallery’s intern program is designed to be a hands-on, flexible learning experience catered to each individual's learning goals. Our communal, cooperative work environment ensures that creative input and expression are encouraged and necessary. Every level of operations at SPACE involves volunteers, and we expect that as an intern, you will identify interest areas for building experience and developing skills. Projects and schedules will vary day by day, but we are committed to providing interns with a meaningful professional learning experience.

No available internships at this time. Please check back soon or send inquiries to our Outreach Coordinator, Martha Schnee: martha@space538.org. 

 


 

VOLUNTEER

Volunteers are an integral part of SPACE. Volunteering can take many forms: gallery sitting, staffing the door at events, prepping exhibition spaces, or making pancakes in the park. Volunteering at SPACE is a great way to meet people and engage with your local art community.

Our aim is to make the volunteer experience a win-win-win situation. We want to match volunteers with opportunities that engage their interests. We work with volunteers based on availability and desired time commitment. Some folks volunteer once a week, others volunteer once a year.

FMI about volunteering at SPACE, please get in touch with our Outreach Coordinator, Martha Schnee: martha@space538.org. 


 

We have an ongoing, generic call for exhibition submissions. Guidelines can be found here.

SPACE is a nonprofit organization that supports contemporary arts projects, champions artists, and encourages an open exchange of ideas.
