Description:
PLAYA, in south central Oregon, is a retreat for creative individuals who are committed and passionate about their work and who will benefit from time spent in a remote location. PLAYA offers seclusion and quiet in a natural environment and the opportunity for interaction, if desired, with a cohort of residents and the local rural community. A residency provides the time and space to create substantive work or to research and reflect upon one's creative or scientific processes.

PLAYA's residencies are open to artists, scientists, naturalists, and individuals engaged in forms of creative research. Playa welcomes a range of applicants--from emerging artists of promise to professionals with an established history of accomplishment. Residencies are awarded for 2, 4, 6, or 8 weeks and include housing, work or studio space, and twice weekly group dinners at no cost. There is a $35 application fee for individuals ($70 for collaborative teams) to cover administrative costs.

Applications are now open with a deadline of March 1, 2016.
