360 ONE DAY
Turning New York City into a residency
Apply and we'll creative match make you with a space somewhere in the five boroughs of NYC.
This residency was born out of our own creative necessity. Inbetween spaces in the country and city, we found ourselves without the very thing we were trying to offer: space.
But how do you run a residency program without a space? You make the residency right where you are.
For us, that meant NYC– from the Bronx to Staten Island. We found partners in community gardens, timeless delis, the most loved-hated MTA, and fancy hi-rise firms... it's short enough so that every kind of space and people of all kinds can participate– just six hours, or 360 minutes. The 360 Residency was born and is thankfully here to stay.
A love letter to New York City- from the corner store to the legislature.
Kacie Lyn-Martinez • 9th St Community Garden
"I collaboratively designed my micro-residency with the 9th Street Community Garden in an interactive installation, an altar of gratitude, admiration, hope, and community. Dozens of garden visitors and members came together to weave letters using garden clippings and natural yarns I spent weeks hand-dyed with red cabbage, onions, and avocados. Together, we crafted an entirely biodegradable installation in six hours...Garden Love Letters is one of my first projects that seeks to embrace the infinite, and the 360 Residency was a profound opportunity to reimagine what a process centering on humans and ecology could be."

Interested in Applying?
You tell us what you are working on and we’ll pair you with a space in New York. We meet you at the space, introduce you to your residency for the day and you take it from there. You’ll have 360 minutes. We’ll ask you to make one post during your residency that what you are working on, something that came up in your process or your interaction with the space. It gets put online as part of a series. We’ll then host a public event this fall and invite all participants to attend and share their work.
It’s free to apply and participate.
"The 360 Minute residency is genius in its reclamation of the creator’s expression and process as an inherently radical act that happens in every day spaces—without the fanfare and gatekeeping of “high art” institution. Through imaginative naming, the parameters of the artist’s studio permeates into a public we often take for granted, and invites possibility that springs from an active conversation with the beautiful, glorious, art of the mundane."
