BRIClab is a multi-disciplinary residency program created to advance opportunities for visual artists, performers, and media makers. 

The BRIClab: Video Art residency track is a year-long residency for professional, local visual artists who have a desire to explore video and audio as distinct mediums, or as part of an interdisciplinary practice. Artist applications are received through an open call and chosen by a panel of artist alumni and BRIClab program managers.

Applications for the 2021 BRIClab: Video Art residency are now open through Feb 18!
