DE-CONSTRUKT [projekts] & ULTRACULTURAL OTHERS are pleased to announce a new residency opportunity in New York City for mystically inclined, radical creatives whose work is socially engaged.
OPEN CALL: NYC October Artist Residency - A Month of Immersive Wellness for Radical Creatives Inclined Toward the Sacred Arts
Live, make, experiment, co-create, learn and engage with the local community of Red Hook, Brooklyn and an array of international contemporary artists at studio DE-CONSTRUKT while taking classes at ULTRACULTURAL OTHERS Urban Mystery Skool in lower Manhattan during this 1-month wellness-infused immersive artist residency.

Enjoy a private fully-furnished bedroom with wifi in addition to the large common studio space with skylights, a shared bathroom, and kitchen.
Select two self-study courses taught by NYC’s most progressive and radical creatives at the ULTRACULTURAL OTHERS Urban Mystery Skool, which is a quick subway commute or bike ride over the Manhattan bridge. DE-CONSTRUKT [projekts] offers an ideal sanctuary with focused quiet time, invigorating dialogue and ample work space. While you have the mystery skool courses in the heart of hip lower Manhattan where Chinatown bodega Buddhism meets handfuls of boutique, niche, gallery spaces, with all the worlds upon worlds New York City offers.

Residents are required to create a component of their work during the residency which engages directly with the local Red Hook community, with support Urban Mystery Skool Faculty. This engagement could also coincide with your role in the mystery skool’s New Moon Wellness Ritual DREAM BEAT.
