Djerassi Resident Artists Program

Deadline: February 15, 2009 (RECEIVE) & (Ongoing)

Djerassi Resident Artists Program

Woodside, CA
Residency in 2010

The mission of the Djerassi Resident Artists Program is to support and enhance the creativity of artists by providing uninterrupted time for work, reflection, and collegial interaction in a setting of great natural beauty, and to preserve the land on which the Program is situated.

Residencies are awarded competitively to artists in the disciplines of music composition, choreography, literature, visual arts, and media arts/new genres. We seek applications on two levels. The first includes emerging and mid-career artists, for whom appointments as resident artists may make a significant difference to their careers. The second level consists of artists with established national and/or international reputations. Artists selected by peer panels are offered, at no cost, room, board, and studio space for four-to five-week sessions during the season, which runs from mid-March through mid-November.

The Djerassi Program is located in a spectacular rural setting in the Santa Cruz Mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean, yet is within easy driving distance to the entire San Francisco Bay Area. The special quality of the residency experience centers around a “retreat” atmosphere.

The deadline for accepting applications is February 15th, each year, for a residency in the following year. Application materials in the following languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Dutch, Greek, Portuguese, Russian, Italian, Spanish are available on our website
