MacDowell Colony Fall Artist Residencies – Suspended

MacDowell Colony Fall Artist Residencies – Suspended

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, April 15, 2020

**The MacDowell Colony has decided to suspend the April 15th deadline for the Fall 2020 residency season. **Like many residency programs, the MacDowell Colony has made the difficult decision to temporarily close its program. Please check our website for up-to-date information about our next application deadline. In the meantime, they can be reached at admissions@macdowellcolony.org with questions.

Operating on the property of the late Edward MacDowell, arguably America’s first great composer, the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire, nurtures the arts by offering creative individuals of the highest talent an inspiring environment in which they can produce enduring works of the imagination.

To advance this mission, the colony is accepting applications from emerging and established artists for its fall fellowship program in the following disciplines: architecture, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, literature, music composition, theater, and visual arts. The fellowship includes exclusive use of a private studio, accommodations, and three prepared meals a day over a period of two to eight weeks.

Fall residencies are available from October 1, 2020, to January 31, 2021. There are no residency fees, and travel grants as well as need-based stipends are available (though artists are generally responsible for the cost of travel to and from the colony).

The sole criterion for acceptance is artistic excellence, which is defined in a pluralistic and inclusive way. The colony encourages applications from artists representing a range of perspectives and demographics. Individuals enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs as of the date of application are ineligible for a fellowship.

There is a $30 processing fee required with each application.

See the MacDowell Colony website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and a list of current fellows.
