Program Description

1. In fulfillment of Tusen Takk’s mission, artists are highly encouraged to engage with the regional arts community when in residence. The context and form of this engagement opportunity are very flexible and can be coordinated with Tusen Takk staff either before or during the residency. Possibilities include an invitation-only workshop, studio visit, or talk; or a public presentation or performance in collaboration with one of the Foundation’s partner organizations. 2. Artists should be open to sharing their work, processes, and experience with audiences through Tusen Takk’s website, social channels, and printed publications. 3. In collaboration with the Director, artists are asked to donate one work to the Foundation’s collection. Artists are also encouraged to leave behind a book as a contribution to the Foundation’s library for future residents. Visit to apply before September 15, 2020 (extended deadline!)..
