Loghaven Artist Residency: Open Call (June 1 - July 15, 2022)

Associated Residency Program

Loghaven is dedicated to supporting artists with all of the resources needed to create innovative new work. To us, this means not only providing time and space and an inspiring setting; it means financial support. We believe artists should be compensated for their time and their contribution to society. Thus, in addition to underwriting the cost of room and board for the duration of the visit, Loghaven provides a weekly living stipend, travel subsidy, and freight reimbursement for materials shipping. 

One of Loghaven’s distinguishing features is our desire to cultivate relationships with Fellows that endure beyond their stay. For over eighty years, this cabin community has been home to artists, intellectuals, and entrepreneurs seeking inspiration in beautiful surroundings. It is our heritage. We consider the Fellows to be members of a longstanding community and have put support structures in place to foster their relationship with Loghaven even after they have completed their residency. Alumni/ae are eligible to receive the Loghaven Prize, in addition to participation in future residencies and programs. We engage alumni/ae through personal outreach, marketing initiatives, and relationship building to promote their work and further their careers.

Residency sessions last from two to six weeks and are process-oriented. Loghaven is a retreat-based residency, and Fellows are not expected to participate in public events unless they choose to do so. If artists are interested in working with the community, Loghaven has regional partners who are eager to interact with resident artists.

This distance requirement is designed to ensure that artists are able to be fully immersed in their residency experience and can take advantage of the retreat-style environment. Please note that all eligibility requirements must be met at the time of application. Please find more information about applying on Loghaven's Apply page or at our FAQs.

Fee Details

Loghaven requires a $150 security deposit upon acceptance. However, if this presents a financial hardship, an artist may make other arrangements with residency staff. If the artist cancels in advance of the residency start date and another artist cannot take their spot, the security deposit will be kept as a cancellation fee. The security deposit will be returned within fourteen days after the end of the residency if no damage has occurred.
