Centrum Artists-In-Residence: (Due Aug. 30)


Since 1980, the Centrum Artists-In-Residence program has welcomed hundreds of artists and creative thinkers to immerse themselves in the historic charm and natural beauty of Fort Worden. The campus has sweeping views of the Olympic and Cascade Mountain ranges, miles of wandering beach and forest trails, and a peppering of World War I–era batteries and bunkers.

Creative professionals from all disciplines and backgrounds can take advantage of charming cabins, studio spaces, and a rich array of resources including Corvidae Press and Rainshadow recording studio. These self-directed residencies allow both individuals and collectives to customize experiences that range from creative solitary pursuits to collaborative productions.

Residents can expect semi-rustic experiences in comfortable cabins or apartments. Visual artists have their choice of a few studios of different sizes, including use of the printmaking studio at Corvidae Press for experienced printmakers. Our campus includes several organizations with whom a resident can arrange to connect such as: Rainshadow recording studio, Madrona MindBody Institute, the Port Townsend School of Woodworking and the Port Townsend School of the Arts.

Residencies are application-based and scheduled in weekly increments between mid-August and the beginning of June.
