ChaNorth, Chashama's upstate artist residency has been located just outside of Pine Plains, NY in the Hudson Valley since 2006. ChaNorth accepts applications in all creative fields, including but not limited to visual arts, choreography, writing, music composition, and performance. National and international emerging and mid-career artists are welcome to apply. For international artists, they can provide letters of support, but each artist is responsible for arranging their own visa. Artists enrolled in graduate and undergraduate programs at the time of their application are not eligible to apply to ChaNorth.
ChaNorth is a Self-Directed Residency. The residency program offers space, time, and inspiration to make new work, providing artists networking, exhibition and teaching opportunities and at the same time promote interest, awareness and understanding of visual arts in a rural community through engagement with the artists. With the mission to support artistic dialogue, ChaNorth provides emerging and mid-career artists an environment that fosters cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas, perspectives and expertise. Each month-long session has 5 to 7 artists, which ChaNorth curates with the aim of creating small, dynamic, diverse, interactive groups.
Artists are selected based on quality and commitment to their work, their project description, and their ability to interact positively with the community. ChaNorth accepts at total of 49 artists for the summer season. The summer artist-in-residence season runs from April through the beginning of November 2020.
During the ChaNorth residency, artists have multiple opportunities to share their work and network with others, including 2-3 studio visits per session from critics, curators, gallerists, and residency directors.
