Caldera Arts Center Residency – Application Open

The Caldera Arts Center is located at an altitude of 3,500 feet in the eastern foothills of the Cascade Mountains. We sit on the shores of Blue Lake, the third deepest lake in Oregon, among 120 acres of ponderosa pine and Douglas fir surrounded by Deschutes National Forest. Caldera is about 20 miles from Sisters, OR.

Through our residency program, Caldera supports artists, creatives, and cultural workers to build skills, relationships, and projects that inspire growth, combat oppression, and activate change. Residents draw inspiration from the residency community and the natural world surrounding the Caldera Arts Center in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.

Caldera offers 2 and 3.5 week residencies January through March. A cohort of 7 – 10 artists is in residence each month.

Residencies are open to US-based and international artists, creatives and cultural workers in any discipline. Artists at any stage of their careers who are not current students are eligible. Residencies are also available for parent artists who would like to bring their children
