San Francisco, USA

San Francisco is known for its entrepreneurial, free-spirited environment. Creative individuals of all stripes thrive on the city’s pioneering spirit and the sense that with a little out-of- the-box thinking, one can make his/her own rules and destiny. It’s an environment where people take pride in inventing new approaches. The recent growth of San Francisco as a technology hub offers artists access to cutting-edge tools & processes, providing them with the opportunity to learn & develop their work in potentially new ways.

During the residency month, the selected artist will receive access to the machines & equipment at the TechShop, including training related to the safe use of the equipment. TechShop is primarily where the artist will produce the bulk of their work. He/she will be accommodated at a private residence in San Francisco’s vibrant & central Mission District. Accommodation includes a single private bedroom & small studio, plus shared kitchen, bathroom and garden/backyard.The residency will culminate in a final presentation of the work by the artist, focused on the work created during the program, hosted at the Pacific Felt Factory Arts Complex.

Tech Shop is a member-based fabrication workshop that allows people of all skill levels access to industrial tools and equipment to build their own projects, at a fraction of what would otherwise be prohibitive costs. Typical equipment includes manual & CNC-operated metal & woodworking machines, welding equipment, design software, 3-D printers, laser-cutters, industrial sewing machines, and much more.
