309 ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM 2021-2022
In 2022, our focus is on facilitating the growth of our community by hosting international, national and regional artists for month long residencies at 309. We hope to amplify the impact of non-commercial art in our community and to foster growth in the creative DIY economy of the South supporting experimentation, and actively creating opportunities for established and emerging artists from around the world.
AIRS will have full 24-hour access to a live/workspace on the first floor and access to the archive for research purposes.
- PROGRAMMING ~ Each Artist in Residence is offered the opportunity to create an educational or immersive experience for the local community. This can take the shape of a reading, lecture, open studio day, workshop, live performance, zoom programming or other community engagement activity. At the end of each residency we will share the work created by Artist in Residence participants.
- THE 309 PUNK ARCHIVE ~ Each Artist in Residence participant donates one work created during their residency to the archive. The goal of the 309 Punk Archive is to inspire research and creative practice from our collective histories that is currently preserved in the archive.
- PMA COLLABORATION ~ The Pensacola Museum of Art has offered to host an annual exhibition to exhibit a group show of the work created in the Artist in Residence Program. We love those folks so much.
309 AIR: Surrounder (5/1/22- 5/31/22)
Surrounder is Carrie Leigh Rogers, Ty Cummings, and Elise Moeller -- the only three people you'll ever meet who can type up a band bio at 83 words-per-minute, crowded around a single computer, each using only one finger. They've been playing shows in the southeast in one form or another for over 100 years (give or take 94 years).
Surrounder plays punk-inspired indie rock with an eye towards realness, intensity, and genre-bending. They've played DIY houses, event halls, fests, and regular ol' bars across the country, amassing an army (give or take a few thousand) of friends and fans. Southern-raised, political and nerdy, and too self-conscious to write a compelling bio -- Surrounder is just a band, actually. A band that's very excited to spend a month making music and experimenting with communal art at 309.
