Residency Application

Eligibility, Deadline, and Procedure

Actively working visual artists, writers, instrumentalists, and composers with at least two years of professional experience since graduation may apply. Residencies are from two to five weeks, however preference is given to applicants requesting residencies of three to five weeks. (If scheduling permits, shorter residencies will be considered.) A limited number of $500 grants are available. If a grant will significantly affect your ability to attend, please fill out the Grants section on the application page. Grants will be awarded on the basis of need. Applying for a grant will not affect your eligibility for a residency.

Since residents share living spaces, artists are encouraged to apply as a group (a combination of artistic disciplines is fine), although each application is reviewed separately and the judges reserve the right to select or reject individual members. When you apply as a group, you may pursue individual projects, collaborative projects, and/or both.

Due to Covid-19, the 2021 application period is February 15 to April 30, 2021. Applications will be reviewed in early May and the plans and terms for this summer’s residency will be decided at that time, with expected notifications to artists by May 20. Residencies will be available starting June 1, 2021.
