DetailsTransforming the world through creative inquiry
Playa offer residencies of soul-expanding space, solitude, and community to artists and scientists whose creative inquiry and innovative dialogue help bring positive change to our environment and world. We offer 2, 3, and 4-week residencies in a stunning desert wetland in the Oregon Outback.
PLAYA’s residencies are open to scientists, naturalists, biologists, designers, sustainability leaders, social practice artists, musicians, visual artists, writers, performing artists, and collaborations and individuals engaged in interdisciplinary work or other forms of creative work. PLAYA welcomes a range of applicants – from emerging scientists and artists to those with an established history of accomplishment. However, applicants must exhibit a recent history of focused work within the discipline for which they are applying. In addition, they must address, in the application, their ability to thrive in a remote, isolated, rural community and be self-directed in their work. Residents with experiences living alone preferred. All residents onsite must be 18 years old or older. Residents’ work must be compatible with PLAYA’s available studio spaces, facilities, and resources, and with PLAYA’s rural setting and community (see below). REAPPLICATION: Past residents must submit new and complete applications. Past residents must wait two years from their last application to re-apply to PLAYA.
