About the Studios
McColl Center’s Studio Rental Program is designed to build a creative community and support regional, emerging artists. The studios are available for rent by artists at a below-market rate, while offering access to other resources including printmaking, sculpture, ceramic, 3-D and media equipment. In making this space available, McColl Center’s goal is to establish a thriving community of artists who will participate in public events, share their practices, ideas and engage with fellow artists both within the building and in the local community. Renters are expected to work in their studios a minimum of 15 hours per week.
PLEASE NOTE: While we love to support a wide array of creative disciplines through our work at Charlotte Is Creative, the McColl Center Studios are not designed for all purposes. For this grant, we will not be accepting applications that seek to use the space for:
- Podcast production/Sound recording
- Performing arts rehearsal
- Video editing
- Retail art sales (onsite/in the studio)
About the Partnership
As part of the partnership between the McColl Center and Charlotte Is Creative’s HUG Micro-Grant program, creatives working in Charlotte are eligible to apply for a four-month granted residency in one of the studios described above. The McColl Center and Charlotte Is Creative will cover all monthly rental fees for the four-month tenure.
In the application below, artists to be considered will present a plan for how they intend to use their four-month studio residency and will be evaluated, in part, on the strength of this plan, in addition to their previous body of work and references. As you complete the application, please be thoughtful and specific on what outcome you hope to achieve and what product, of any, you will produce by the end of your four months. Our expectation is that you will be willing to share any work you create with the general public. We will also chronicle your journey on social media and BiscuitCLT.com
