REMINDER: Please go to to apply. The above is only to give you an idea of what the application process entails. 

Applications will be received and evaluated on a rolling basis. Those who are not accepted will be placed on a waitlist. The admissions committee takes the following into account while evaluating applications:

  • Artistic merit
  • Creative balance—applicants should represent a range of disciplines across the creative arts
  • Inclusivity: As a program based on the exchange of knowledge and experience, we strive for a diverse representation of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, class and creed among our participants, and accordingly, we are prioritizing applications from underrepresented artists in the creative arts. We are currently working to make our accommodations more easily accessible to people with mobility issues. 
  • Participants’ ability and willingness to contribute to a safe, inspirational and healthy experience for everyone involved, including property owners.
