Depending on funding, stipends may be available for residents. We do not require a separate application for stipends and will let finalists for residencies know if funding is available.
Residents are responsible for food, travel, materials, and other expenses.
Through their residency program, Caldera supports artists, creatives, and cultural workers to build skills, relationships, and projects that inspire growth, combat oppression, and activate change. Residents draw inspiration from the residency community and the natural world surrounding the Caldera Arts Center in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Caldera offers 2 and 3.5 week residencies January through March. A cohort of 7 – 10 artists is in residence each month.
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. Caldera supports collaborations of up to 4 people, as well as individuals.
Proposals for creative 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:
Residents are provided a private cabin with sleeping loft, living room/work area, kitchenette, bathroom with shower, and a porch overlooking Link Creek or with a view of Blue Lake. Wireless internet is available in all cabins. Cabin kitchens have a coffee pot, two-burner stove, microwave, small refrigerator, dishes, and pots and pans. Residents also have access to a full commercial kitchen in the Hearth Building. Cabins are heated by electric heat and most include wood stoves (with wood provided).
Artists should be able to practice their work independently without assistance and provide their own materials and tools. Please visit the Arts Center page for photos of their facilities.
