If you make or curate cool stuff, you could be one of the 2015 residents at Little Paper Planes in the Mission. Never heard of the program? That's because it's a relatively new. Though LPP has connected artists and collectors since 2004, it launched the residency after moving to Valencia Street. The goal is to offer artists, curators, collectives, photographers, writers, musicians, and craftspeople the opportunity to engage to the public in a month-long workshops and pop-ups. It includes free space, as well as support for screenings, readings, lectures and workshops. According to the website, residents are required to offer at least two public programs or events during the course of their time at LPP, and each residency culminates with a publication and/or print edition published by LPP as an extension of the residency. SFMOMA's Library and Archives collect all publications. If you're interested, or know someone who would be awesome, 2015 residency applications are due on November 30.
