Please note that the eligibility guidelines for the 2019–2020 Workspace program have changed. Please review the program guidelines in full before submitting an application.

 LMCC’s flagship residency program, Workspace, is a nine-month studio-based program that focuses on the creative process and cohort development of emerging artists. At its core, Workspace nurtures experimentation, creative risk taking, collaboration, learning and skill sharing through regular opportunities for dialogue with peers and arts professionals. Participating artists are provided semi-private studio spaces and are expected to engage with the cohort for the full duration of the nine-month program. It currently serves between 10 and 15 individuals or collaborative groups annually.

SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION

This is how you will receive emails with important follow up information as well as the official notification in August 2019.

Saving Your Work

Once you have set up your account, you can begin filling out the Online Application Form. The form periodically saves to your account. However, we highly encourage you to use the "Save Draft" button at the bottom of the form before exiting. Each time you save, the latest draft will be kept in your Submittable account. Please note: if you have this form open in multiple windows, Submittable will auto save the version that is last open. 

We recommend saving your responses in a document offline and copying and pasting them into the Online Application Form from there. Please note that this application form contains conditional logic. Certain fields will only appear after you have completed earlier sections of the application.

Complete and submit all components of your application online. Application forms are not considered final until submitted. Once you have submitted the form, you will not be able to make changes, or resubmit. You will receive a confirmation email when your application has been successfully submitted.
