Centrum Artists in Residence Program


Centrum's Artist Residency Program was established in 1980 as a resource for artists and creative thinkers of all genres. Residency projects can be focused on a single genre or be a multidisciplinary undertaking, and might be the creative work of an individual or encompass the collaborative work of a group. In partnership with Washington State Parks, Centrum is able to offer an opportunity to selected artists to live and work in this magnificent setting at a significantly reduced cost. Residents also have the opportunity to work with our campus partners Copper Canyon Poetry Press, Corvidae Print Studio, Madrona MindBody Institute, Port Townsend Marine Science Center, and Synergy Sound Studio (by prior arrangement).


Port Townsend, Washington: United States

Centrum is located within Fort Worden State Park in the Victorian seaport of Port Townsend on Washington's Olympic Peninsula. Noted for its strong support of arts and culture, Port Townsend is an ideal place for the kind of self directed retreats enjoyed by successful residency applicants.
