Program Description

We offer residencies ranging in duration from two weeks to three and a half months. We encourage those who can to apply for full-length residencies, and we understand that shorter stays are more practical for some people. Each resident receives private living space and, if needed, private studio space. Studios and residences are assigned by the Sitka Center depending on individual needs and collective needs. Residences include private living, sleeping, bathroom and kitchen areas. Each kitchen is equipped for basic cooking. Laundry facilities are available at a central location on campus. Most residents are given a private studio. Residents are responsible for providing their own food, art supplies, and transportation while in residence, and no living stipend is provided.
