Q: Why do I have to find my own way to the moon?
A: Unfortunately, we are not able to fund artist transport to the Moon at this time. As with many terrestrial residencies, artists will be expected to find their own way to the residency site.
Q: What type of supplies are available? Will I be provided with a spacesuit? Oxygen? Food and water?
A: We cannot provide enough space suits to accommodate the unique physiology and personal preferences of each artist. For that reason, artists must provide their own space suit. Oxygen is supplied, but artists should plan to provide their own food and water.
Q: What happens to work I make during the residency?
A: Your work will return to Earth with you, but we do ask for a selection of files for our archives. Reproductions of your work will be printed in an annual publication, as well as published online. You will receive copies of the print catalog for your own records.
Q: What kind of financial support can I expect?
A: We are currently seeking donations in order to offer financial support to our artists. If you are
interested in making a donation, please contact us at lunarresidency[at]gmail.com.
Q: What if I don’t make anything, go crazy, or die in space?
A: Should it become necessary, we will publish a statement or obituary (as appropriate) in our annual publication in place of (or in addition to) your work.
