Through our residency program, Caldera supports artists, creatives, and cultural workers to build skills, relationships, and projects that inspire growth, combat oppression, and activate change. Residents draw inspiration from the residency community and the natural world surrounding the Caldera Arts Center in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.
Caldera offers 2 and 3.5 week residencies January through March. A cohort of 7 – 10 artists is in residence each month and each resident is provided with a private creekside or lakeside cabin and, if needed, separate studio space.
Residencies are open to US-based and international artists, creatives and cultural workers in any discipline. Artists at any stage of their careers who are not current students are eligible. Collaborations of up to 4 individuals are supported. Residencies are also available for parent artists who would like to bring their children.
