The NAHR Eco-Design Futures, Technology & New Media Fellowship
In partnership with Media Design Practices at ArCenter College of Design in Pasadena, CA, Nature, Art & Habitat Residency (NAHR), is pleased to announce an exciting new opportunity available exclusively to MDP’s students, alumni and faculty (full- and part-time) – the inaugural NAHR Eco-Designed Futures, Technology & New Media Fellowship (June 2019). This prize is to be conferred to a single member of the MDP community able to take up residency in the village of Sottochiesa, Taleggio Valley, northern Italy, between May 30th - June 25, 2019.
The selected designer will be one of seven Fellows participating in the 2019 June NAHR residency program. More information can be found here, and applicants are strongly encouraged to read closely before making their applications.
Recipients of the AC/NAHR Eco-Design Futures Fellowship will have residency fees waived, however it remains the responsibility of the winner to make their own way to and from Taleggio, as well as covering the costs of food during the residency. If the award recipient is a student who uses the fellowship to fulfill their Summer X-Term requirements, they will receive scholarship to cover the corresponding curricular units. For current students and faculty, the MDP will also provide a $750 award to help offsite travel expenses.
Set in northern Italy and situated in the heart of the Orobie Alps, our residents take full advantage of the surrounding natural landscapes as well as Italy’s rich material culture, which combines vernacular traditions with innovative approaches to space and place, people and their communities.
Alongside a current CV (which will include the contact details of three referees), a one-page statement of personal/creative motivation, and a one-page project proposal outlining creative activities relating to GRASSES (the theme of NAHR’s 2019 program), those interested in applying for this award are requested to also supply a portfolio of up to five projects which in some way relate to 2019 topic and to the domain: Eco-Designed Futures, Technology & New Media.
Please note, in order to apply for this award, applicants must be a MDP alumni, current student, or current faculty (part- or full-time). If you are not associated with the MDP, you can apply to the NAHR open call.

Applications are due by Friday February 2, 2019, and can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please title your emails “Eco-Design Futures_NAHR MDP_ (YOUR NAME)”.
