2013 Artists in Residency
Every winter from January through March, we welcome creative individuals from all over the world to our Caldera Arts Center in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains near Sisters, Oregon. Artists are provided the gift of time and space for one-month long residencies. Because we believe a range of backgrounds enhances the communal experience, residencies are open to artists from any field, as well as creative thinkers in engineering, design and the sciences.
Successful applicants stay in Caldera’s A-frame cabins, designed to inspire and nurture. Equipped with simple kitchens, private bathrooms, wood stoves and plenty of space for creative work, the cabins lie along Link Creek in Central Oregon, just west of the town of Sisters. Two visual arts studios and a beautifully designed performance space (including a half-sprung floor) are also available. Surrounding Caldera are miles of hiking trails as well as a cerulean blue, 350-foot-deep lake, aptly named Blue Lake, a geological caldera and the second deepest
lake in Oregon.
To apply for a residency, applicatns must submit a formal application (available for download or through online submission manager) by June 15, 2012, along with a project description, work samples and the application fee. All applications are reviewed by an admissions
panel made up of professionals in the various disciplines. The awards will be announced in early September.
