Sitka residencies provide time and space for self-paced work and reflection in an inspiring natural setting. Residents from a broad range of art, writing, performance and science-based practices come to Sitka to create and explore away from the familiar contexts and constraints of daily routines, and free from external expectations. Located within the unique ecosystems of Cascade Head and the Salmon River Estuary on Oregon's central coast, Sitka is a place where natural curiosity is sparked and creativity is unleashed.
Residencies include but are not limited to visual artists, photographers, writers, journalists, musicians, composers, filmmakers, educators, natural scientists and interdisciplinary creatives. Some residents are emerging voices while others are practicing professionals, and our residents represent a diversity of geographies and cultural backgrounds.
