Grand Canyon Conservancy’s Artist in Residence program hosts individual artists from around the world who wish to engage with Grand Canyon National Park and its people during an eight-week residency at the South Rim in Arizona. The program is designed to support artists with a well-developed body of work that engages contemporary themes, especially those tied to conservation, cultural identity, and community.
Three Artists in Residence will be invited to stay at the South Rim of Grand Canyon in 2023. Residents will be provided with fully furnished accommodations in the historic Verkamp’s artist residence directly overlooking the canyon, and a stipend of $2,500 for eight weeks. An artist may be in residence from January 4–March 1, June 14–August 9, or August 16–October 11, 2023. Artists are responsible for their supplies, meals, toiletries, and transportation.
The proposal deadline for 2023 is September 30, 2022.
Artists will be notified of their acceptance by November 15, 2022.
*Due to current housing limitations and National Park Service restrictions, GCC can only accept solo artists at the residency. While GCC will do everything in its means to support the presence of collaborators and family members, each artist must take full financial responsibility for the accommodations, travels, and all other associated fees related to visitors during their residency.
If you have any questions or require support with completing your proposal, please contact Clover Morell, Residency Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
