2023 Residency Application

Deadline August 25, 2022

Vashon Artist Residency offers artists space and time to create, connect and live in a community of artists on spectacular Vashon Island in the Salish Sea. The residency is located on the shore of Quartermaster Harbor and provides comfortable living accommodations, artist studios and space for writers. Vashon Artist Residency serves artists in the disciplines of visual, dance, theater, music, media, literary and interdisciplinary arts.

The Residency provides housing and workspace, on a sliding scale, need-based fee structure. We currently offer 3.5 week long residencies and one 2 week residency session to emerging, mid-career, and established artists. We usually have four artists in each residency session. Any work an artist makes at Vashon Artist Residency will be theirs. We do not impose expectations on the artists during this self-directed time.

We are committed to offering this opportunity to artists from different races, economic backgrounds, disciplines, home states and countries. We believe that welcoming artists from diverse backgrounds will stimulate growth and exploration for each individual and their cohort.
