The KBOO Community Radio Artist In Residence Program assists artists working creatively with sound. Every year, one artist or one collaborative group of artists will be awarded twenty hours of studio recording (or lent audio equipment for home production during COVID19) and production time with a KBOO Mixologist in order to create a piece of sound art that will be publicly presented at the end of the Residency.
The Artist in Residence Program is open to artists of all disciplines whose project proposals include sound as a major component.
The goals of the KBOO Artist Support Program are to support and invest in individuals who are pushing themselves artistically using sound, whose work will impact the cultural landscape of Portland, and to bring those artists into the dynamic KBOO community of local, national, and international artists and activists.
The KBOO Artists in Residence program is open to non-student artists residing in the the Portland Metro Area of any age, discipline, or background. Current KBOO Community Radio staff, interns, board members, or their immediate family may not apply. Artists who have previously participated in the Artist Support Program must wait 2 years before being eligible to apply again.
