Headlands Center for the Arts’ Artist in Residence Program has earned international renown for bringing together pioneering artists in all disciplines-visual, literary, performing and new media-from throughout the U.S. and the world.

The Artist in Residence program provides a supportive working environment that allows time for artists to experiment, reflect and grow, both individually and collectively during their stay.

The program offers fully sponsored, live-in and live-out residencies to around 30 artists each year from March to November and is distinguished in that there is no fee to participate.

Through the support of generous donations, Artists in Residence are provided with a studio, shared housing and five meals a week for live-in artists. A studio and dinner twice weekly are provided for live-out artists. Stipends of up to $500/month are available pending funding and sponsorships secured each year.

Residencies range from one to six months, with an average stay of three months.

Artists are selected based upon merit, through a mixture of open application and invitation. Headlands currently accepts applications for residencies from artists working in all disciplines: visual, literary, performing and new media. Headlands Center for the Arts also provides Bridge residencies by nomination to artists who are leaders in using the creative process as a catalyst for social change.

Headlands offers residencies to artists from across the U.S. and around the world, from places such as Sweden, Denmark, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Italy, India, Japan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Cuba, Brazil, Mexico and more than 20 other countries.
