residency: The Centrum Institute Residencies
http://www.centrum.org/

Established in 1980, Centrum's artist residency program aims to create an environment where ideas, music, writing, art and more can be developed, and eventually disseminated. Centrum Creative Residencies are about time and space. With both, you’ll have the opportunity to grow as an artist or creative thinker. Centrum Creative Residencies are open to artists, thinkers, activists, performers —anyone involved in creative endeavors. A residency may involve either the solitary creative work of an individual or the interactive work of a group. It can focus on a single genre or be multidisciplinary. A residency may involve active engagement with other Centrum programs, artists, and communities, or it may serve as a reflective retreat. Residencies are awarded on a space-available basis, in week-long blocks (Friday-Friday). Residencies are available as space exists in Centrum facilities--generally January through June, and August through December. Some resources are available year-round. Centrum’s location at Fort Worden State Park offers residents a portfolio of resources. We offer modest, 2-3 bedroom cabins and apartments, some with small studios, and upright pianos. Print, painting, and rehearsal studios are also available for rental by creative residents, including a non-toxic print studio featuring a 30” American French etching press. Recording studio time can also be arranged at Fort Worden’s Synergy Sound studio. For an more information, please visit: www.centrum.org.

The foundation is interested in supporting programs and projects in the areas of elementary, secondary, and higher education; health care and education; Human services, particularly for children and youth; economic development and civic affairs; art and cultural activities; and conservation of natural resources and environmental education. Preference is given to one-time capital projects, matching/challenge grants, specific projects, construction, land acquisition, and equipment purchases. Application forms are not required. Proposals should be made in letter form and describe the organization, including its purposes, staffing, and governing board; latest financial statement and most recent audit report; description of the proposed project and justification for funding; itemized project budget, including other sources of support; and evidence of tax-exempt status. The board meets in April and November to consider requests.
