Kipaipai Workshops, in partnership with Donkey Mill Art Center, announce their first joint artist residency in Hawaiʻi. This residency is open to artists and makers (families welcome) looking for an immersion in nature, community engagement and concentrated time to research and conceptualize future projects. It is a 30-day residency taking place in July 2022. One artist will be chosen. This residency is focused on offering one artist (and their immediate family) a respite from their regular studio practice and focus on introspection, research, conceptualizing, and strategizing future projects. The artist will be offered one month housing in Kailua-Kona, Hawaiʻi, in July 2022 which does not include a studio. This residency is a partnership between Kipaipai Workshops and the Donkey Mill Art Center near the village of Hōlualoa, Hawaiʻi. This residency is looking for an artist with experience in teaching or comfortable working with teens and keiki. As part of the residency, the artist will lead several workshops/community engagements during the Donkey Mill Art Center’s Youth Summer Art Experience programs which focuses on environmental and cultural connections. There may be opportunities for the chosen artist to collaborate with local artists, and participate in the Donkey Mill’s studios.

Artists will complete the application through CAFE and attach the required documentation which includes an artist statement, examples of work (jpgs), answering application questions and a statement on the artist’s expectations on outcomes and benefits of the residency. The deadline for submission is December 1, 2021. Jurors will choose one winner and one runner up between December 2, 2021 and January 1, 2022. Artist is responsible for all travel expenses including airline travel, rental car and living expenses.

Residency open to English speaking mid-career or experienced visual artists or makers. Teaching experience or community engagement experience preferred. Must be available to conduct workshops or activities in July 2022. Must have their own transportation to and from the Kailua-Kona house and Donkey Mill Art Center (approximately 5 miles).
