Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, Howard L. McKee Ecology, Recorder and Printmaking Residency

Deadline: April 16th, 2019

Sitka offers a variety of residencies both at the main campus and at our newly acquired Grass Mountain property. The general Residency Program has provided more than 250 artists, writers, musicians and natural science scholars the opportunity to conduct their work in the unique environment of Cascade Head and Salmon River estuary. Residents are on campus October through mid-May for our general residency program and throughout the summer for some of our specialty programs.

Up to five residents at a time, usually from different disciplines and stages in their careers, live and work on campus anywhere from 2 weeks up to 3 1/2 months free of charge.  A residency is about taking precious time out of the regular routine of life and expanding into the space of creativity, it is a gift of space and time.

Tucked in the forest near Cascade Head, Sitka is an ideal location to withdraw from the distraction of daily life, finding the solitude needed to push through creative boundaries and chase artistic pursuits. We revere this practice. Our intention is to offer residencies of two weeks and up to three and one half months with living spaces and studios that enhance this experience.
