|Some artist residencies that welcome scientists.|
View larger map.
Scientists often visit field research stations to write and reflect in an inspiring environment, rather than to conduct actual science. Artist residency programs might offer a similar option that also provides a potentially valuable connection to a different community.
The Alliance of Artist Communities maintains a page of ecologically-oriented artist residency programs (that may be amenable to scientists). And here is a list of scientist-friendly artist residencies:
- Pioneer Works, NY
- PLAYA, OR
- Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, OR
- Akademie Schloss Solitude, Germany
- Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences, GA
- The Rockefeller Foundation - Bellagio Arts & Literary Arts Residency, Italy
- Caldera Arts Center, OR
- Center for Land Use Interpretation, UT
- Ucross Foundation Residency Program, WY
- Djerassi Resident Artists Program, CA
Thanks to Flannery Patton for this list. I'll keep updating it as we learn more.
