Monson Arts Residency / Deadline: September 15

Monson Arts‘ residency program supports emerging and established artists and writers by providing them time and space to devote to their creative practices. During each of the 2-week and 4-week programs throughout the year, a cohort of 5 artists and 5 writers are invited to immerse themselves in small town life at the edge of Maine’s North Woods and focus intensely on their work within a creative and inspiring environment. Artists receive a private studio, private bedroom in shared housing, all meals, and $1,000 stipend ($500 for 2-week programs).

The Abbott Watts Residency for Photographers offers access to the photography studio and darkroom of Todd Watts in nearby Blanchard, adjacent to the former home of Berenice Abbott and takes place concurrently with the other sessions.

Winter Residencies:

1/8 – 1/18 2 Week Residency

1/22 – 2/15 4 Week Residency (Abbott Watts)

2/19 – 3/14 4 Week Residency

Residencies are open to artists at all stages of their career. Both US Citizens and non-U.S. citizens (with working knowledge of English) may apply. Applicants must not be currently enrolled in a BFA or MFA program. PhD’s may apply if the time will support research. All forms of art are welcome to apply.
