Rivet (formerly res) is a unified search platform designed to help you find and activate opportunities to advance your creative practice.

We are building a website to make searching for and applying to residencies, incubators, fellowships and open calls easier and more open.

Would you like to help us build Rivet?

We are raising funds on Patreon, where early bird supporters of Rivet will have access to the beta launch this winter. Cultural organizations, institutions, and networks can get a head-start in getting their programs to a global audience.

Rivet was founded in 2016 by Katrina Neumann, Sebastien Sanz de Santamaria & Kira Simon-Kennedy.

They each run their own online information platforms for artists, Rate My Artist Residency, Residency Unlimited, and China Residencies, respectively.

In joining their networks and experience, they are busy building Rivet with support from NEW INC, New Museum's cultural incubator, and Made in NY Media Center by IFP.

We built a guide to Apply for Things!

After teaching fifteen workshops on Applying For Things at NEW INC and throughout the region over the last year, we've compiled advice from decision makers and selected participants into a ten-step guide on how to approach and activate opportunities.

Join Our Workshops

We also run workshops to demystify the process of applying to residencies, grants, and creative opportunities. They have taken place at universities such as Cooper Union, SUNY Stony Brook, University of Massachusetts Amherst, New Jersey College, as well as arts organizations and nonprofit spaces like NEW INC, NYFA, Urban Glass, The Knockdown Center, Impact Hub, Idea New Rochelle & more.

Proceeds from these individually tailored workshops go directly towards developing Rivet.

Interested in a workshop? Our rates run from $150 to $500 per session, sliding scale.
