Are you a visual artist? Musician? Electronics wizard? Programmer? If you enjoy making things and teaching people new skills, we would love to hear from you!
The Harrison Public Library Maker-in-Residence will work out of the Library for 4 hours per month for 3 months, working on a project of their choosing, which will be displayed in the Library at the end of their residency. As part of your residency, you will share your skills with the public. We’ll cover the costs for workshop supplies and pay you a stipend of $500 for your supplies and time working and teaching. You get unrestricted access to our equipment, opportunity to learn new skills, public exposure for your work, and a chance to share your talents with your community and all the warm fuzzy feelings that entails. We’re looking for all kinds of making, whether digital or physical. Come and show us how you do it.
Makers selected must be 21 or older, must be subjected to a comprehensive criminal background check, and have professional references. Applications are accepted and makers are selected on a rolling basis, with appointments made as residencies end.
