RAIR

RAIR is a non-profit arts organization uniquely situated within a construction and demolition recycling center in Northeast Philadelphia. RAIR’s residency program provides artists on-site access to recovered materials and a studio space to produce work. The RAIR workspace includes a large project space, wood shop equipment, metalworking facilities, access to the waste stream for materials, and a material storage area. Artists-in-residence receive attentive support from RAIR's staff who act as liaisons between the artist and the recycling facility. In addition to providing artists on-site access to recovered materials, construction equipment, and a fully-equipped studio space, RAIR’s residency program offers artists the opportunity to use the entire 3.5-acre facility as an expansive project space for the development and presentation of ambitious experimental work.
