Call for VCCA Resident Fellow

VCCA is seeking a VCCA Fellow to be in residence at VCCA from February 1, 2019 – May 31, 2019, to serve as emergency on-call personnel for this residential community of twenty-five artists. The Fellow must have previously been in residence at VCCA. The Fellow would be expected to become part of the community and would be free to pursue personal creative work when not actively engaged in work responsibilities. The Fellow may be requested from time to time to attend monthly staff meetings.

Applicants should be comfortable working in an artists community setting and able to respond to emergency requests as needed throughout a 24-hour period.

The Resident Fellow would be provided three prepared meals each day and accommodations in Cottage A, which has kitchen facilities and a shared bath. This live-work space would best accommodate a writer, photographer, or composer working with a keyboard and headphones. As part of the Resident Fellow experience, the Fellow would be expected to dine with the other Fellows for dinner five nights each week.

The Resident Fellow would be responsible for 24-hour on-call emergency coverage for VCCA during weekends and shared responsibility with the Resident Director for emergency coverage during the week (includes lockouts and facilities issues). The compensation for these responsibilities will be paid in-kind by three meals per day, a studio, and on-site housing.

The Resident Fellow would be paid an hourly wage for the following responsibilities if needed:
·       kitchen responsibilities when kitchen assistants are unavailable, due to weather or illness.
·       other facilities or office work, as needed, not to exceed eight hours per week.

If interested, please send a letter of interest to vcca@vcca.com by December 7, 2018, placing “Resident Fellow 2019” in the subject line of your email. Please include the names of three references, along with their contact information.
