The Pier 9 Artists in Residence (AIR) program gives artists, makers, and fabricators a chance to work with us in our digital fabrication workshops at Autodesk. Our artists explore, create, and document cutting-edge projects, and share them with the DIY community.
We are now accepting applications for 2015.
Gain access to advanced CNC machines: a waterjet and 5-axis router, multi-material 3D printers, full metal and wood shops, electronics lab, and more.
Meet a mix of industry professionals, Autodesk specialists, and fellow artists at Pier 9, in an environment of shared expertise and learning.
Gain access to all Autodesk products and receive support from software evangelists at Pier 9, to push your design skills and help shape our products.
Get funding, build space, and 1-on-1 advice from the Pier 9 workshop team to create your project. Pier 9 is a resource and a space that inspires.
Artists work on projects that are shared with the Pier 9 community. The primary program goals are to support the artist and maker communities by producing inspirational content, and connect innovative and creative individuals with our unique tools and resources.
Artists participate in our thriving community through skill sharing workshops, meetings, partner opportunities, and guest talks.
Pier 9 offices are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Artists have access to workshops during business hours and weekends pending availability of safety monitors.
Residents own all of their intellectual property and physical work created at Pier 9 during their residency.
Residencies last from 2 to 6 months. Soft starts, to get advanced training on our tooling, are recommended.
Artists receive a $1,500 monthly stipend, plus a budget for project supplies.
Artists must publish their work on Instructables.com, and make a presentation at the close of the residency.
Artists in residence create their work locally at Pier 9 and share their process on Instructables.com.
