Breckenridge Creative Arts (CO), International Call for Applicants: 2019 Artist-in-Residence, with stipend
Deadline: August 31st, 2018
Breckenridge Creative Arts (BCA) artist-in-residence program offers regional, national, and international artists of all disciplines an opportunity to focus on process rather than product while engaging with the local community in a meaningful way.
Visiting artists live and work for 4–8 weeks in the Breckenridge Arts District, an intimate campus of historic structures nestled under majestic snow-capped peaks in cozy downtown Breckenridge. During their live/work residency, artists partner with a local organization to explore a place-based thematic narrative—whether that means interpreting our spectacular mountain setting, rich local history, or risk-taking spirit; or focusing on an environmental or social topic important to the community.
Stipend: BCA will reimburse artists up to $500 for travel, and artists are offered a weekly stipend of $200 to cover food, materials, and other expenses.
Artist expectations include: 1) mentoring a local artist-in-residence; 2) participating in monthly Second Saturdays; 3) facilitating a weekly class, lecture, or activity on campus; and 4) planning and hosting a final presentation or event produced in collaboration with a local partner.
The artist-in-residence program is a partnership between Breckenridge Creative Arts and the Saddle Rock Society.
