Every winter from January through March, creative individuals and collaborative groups from all over the world are welcomed to Caldera Arts Center in Oregon’s Cascade Mountain range. Because we believe a range of backgrounds enhances the communal experience, residencies are open to national and international artists of any discipline, as well as creative thinkers in engineering, design and the sciences who have emerged and established themselves beyond university training. Caldera's Artist in Residence (AiR) Program began in 2001 and since has offered the gift of space and time to over 300 creative people. Today, Caldera is open to applications from parent artists.
The geographic and disciplinary diversity of applications reflects Caldera’s belief that creativity is an innate quality of all individuals. It also confirms Caldera’s perspective that diversity enhances the experience of all residents at Caldera, creating a broader arena of ideas in which participants can share their work. Caldera's AiR program happens alongside its successful Youth program.
Caldera’s youth program provides underserved Oregon children with year-round, long-term mentoring through arts and nature projects, beginning at age 11 and continuing through young adulthood. Linking Caldera’s youth and adult programs is a passionate belief in the power of creativity. Residents are encouraged to contribute to our Youth program.
Apply for Caldera's ARTIST IN RESIDENCE program and spend one-month in private accommodations and private studio or semi-private studio. With this program, you are encouraged to do a workshop or presentation to our youth and to contribute to Open Studios on the last Saturday of the month.
Deadline: June 17th, 2016.
