National Digital Stewardship Residency Art (NDSR Art) is now accepting applications for its second and final cohort. Four candidates will be selected to work on projects related digital stewardship of new media and arts information. Each resident will be assigned to one of the four available projects and corresponding host institutions. The 2018-19 hosts are the Art Institute of Chicago, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum of Art, Maryland Institute College of Art, and Small Data Industries. See the Project Description page for qualification requirements and information about each of the four projects.
Applicants should specify their top two institutional choices in their application form. Application review will begin immediately and will continue until the positions are filled.
The deadline for applications is March 16, 2018. Selected residents will be announced in May.
This NDSR Art residency runs for 12 months, from July 16, 2018 to July 12, 2019, starting with a week-long training session in Philadelphia. Residents will work full-time, on-site in fully funded positions at their host institutions with opportunities for travel and professional development throughout.
This program aims to bridge the gap between existing, well-developed classroom education and the need for more direct professional experience in the field. The mission of the National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) is to build a dedicated community of professionals who will advance our nation’s capabilities in managing, preserving, and making accessible the digital record of human achievement. We encourage students interested in digital stewardship and cultural heritage to apply.
