Voices of the Wilderness Artist Residency
Applications due by 11:59 PM AK time (6 hours earlier than EST) March 1, 2017

This is modeled after traditional residencies in the national parks…with a twist. Instead of staying at a remote wilderness cabin, our participating artists are paired with a wilderness ranger and actively engaged in stewardship projects, such as research, monitoring, and education. The idea is to give artists a sense of the stewardship behind America’s public lands, fostering an artistic exploration of these natural and cultural treasures. The hoped-for result is artwork that communicates something of the meaning of these lands.

Residencies open to Art professionals in all media – visual (two and three dimensional, photographers, sculptors, painters), audio (musicians, singers, composers), film (video/filmmakers), and writers (poets, fiction, essays, storytellers). Residency period: Residency dates vary, but typically they are hosted June through September, lasting 7-9 days. Coordinator contact: Barbara Lydon (907) 754-2318.
