The Headlands Center for the Arts campus comprises a cluster of artist-rehabilitated military buildings just north of the Golden Gate Bridge at historic Fort Barry in the Marin Headlands, a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The center’s programs support artists in all disciplines — from visual artists to performers, musicians, writers, and videographers — and provide opportunities for independent and collaborative creative work.
The center currently is inviting applications for its Artist in Residence program. Through the program, fully sponsored residencies that include a monthly stipend of $500 will be awarded to approximately fifty local, national, and international artists at the cutting edge of their fields whose work has the potential to impact the cultural landscape at large.
Residencies run from four to ten weeks and include round-trip airfare, up to 2,000-square-foot studios, five chef-prepared meals per week, access to vehicles as well as basic woodshop; audio/video equipment; an artists’ library with computer, scanner, and printer; and field trips to Bay Area museums, galleries, and cultural venues.
There is an application fee of $25.
Eligible artists may be at any stage their career and work in any media, including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, film, video, new media, installation, fiction and nonfiction writing, poetry, dance, music, interdisciplinary, social practice, and architecture. Artists must not currently be enrolled in an academic program at the time the residency would take place. Eligibility of artists enrolled in PhD programs will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
