Caldera Arts: Artists in Residence
Deadline: June 25, 2021
Residencies are open to US-based and international artists, creatives and cultural workers in any discipline. Artists at any stage of their careers who are not current students are eligible. Residencies are also available for parent artists who would like to bring their children.
Proposals for residencies must be compatible with available working studio spaces, facilities, and resources.
Caldera has identified the following as priorities for our Artists in Residence Program, and selection is made with these in mind.
Artists and cultural workers who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, or People of Color). Caldera’s benchmark is for BIPOC artists to make up 90% of our residents.Teaching artists who have experience working with racially/ethnically diverse groups of young people. Teaching artist applicants are invited to propose a multi-session workshop for high school-aged youth that they would like to teach during their residency.
Artists and cultural workers who are advancing cultural and social change through their work.
Parents, particularly parents of color.
Offered by the residency:
Cabins: Each resident will be housed in a private a-frame cabin, which includes 3 – 4 beds, full bathroom, desk or table, electric heat, wood stove, and mini-kitchen (2 burner stove, mini-fridge, toaster oven, microwave, coffee pot, Instant pot, pots/pans/dishes).
Studio Space: Three private studios will be available (Campbell Studio, Photo Studio, and Grand Room) and assigned based on project description and stated need. Not all residents will be assigned a studio.
Stipend: Each resident will receive a stipend to support their participation in the residency. Stipend amount will vary based on the requested length of residency (2 weeks or 3.5 weeks). Stipends will be paid by check after the residency is completed. Caldera can only provide stipends to individuals with a social security number.
