The Contemporary Artists Center (CAC) focuses on emerging and early career contemporary artists.

We seek artists who want to produce, explore, test new concepts, and expand the current debates and ideas in contemporary art and culture. The CAC accepts artists for residencies who offer quality in their art and encourages diversity of style, medium (2-D, 3-D, 4-D) and concepts.

CAC Woodside accepts artists for residencies who offer quality, seriousness, or experience in their art and encourages diversity of style, medium, and concepts.

Applications to the residency program are accepted on a rolling basis. However, priority consideration and fellowships will be awarded to those applying by the deadlines. Please indicate if alternate dates will be considered in the event that the dates you request become filled. Applicants are encouraged to apply even if the priority deadlines are passed, in the event that the dates requested and/or funding may still be available.

Residency fees are a flat rate of $290 per week or $1150 per month and include accommodation and access to all CAC Woodside facilities. If you are interested in using the studios without accommodation please contact us for reduced rates. All returning artists receive a 15% discount on residencies.

CAC Woodside provides awards to approximately 95% of Residents. Please apply by priority deadlines for consideration. Award amounts range from $50/wk to full cost.
