Djerassi Fellowship Residencies Application

The Djerassi Resident Artists Program invites Santa Clara County-based and San Mateo County-based artists working in the primary disciplines of the visual arts, new media/new genre, literature, choreography and music composition to apply for two Residency Fellowships for the 2009 residency season. Made possible in part by a grant from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, each Fellowship is comprised of a one-month residency at the Program's SMIP Ranch in rural Woodside and a $1500 unrestricted stipend.

Due to the Program's recent grant award for these two geographically specific Fellowships, the postmark deadline to submit applications for these Fellowships only is March 15, 2009. All other artists applying for the 2009 residency season must comply with the established February 15, 2009 postmark deadline. Application guidelines and forms are available at www.djerassi.org
All artists' applications, including those qualifying for the Fellowships, will be reviewed together in the spring.

The Djerassi Resident Artists Program core residency season in 2009 runs from mid-March through mid-November. The Program covers all direct expenses of an artist's one-month residency, including studio space, housing, all meals, administrative and technical support, local transportation and many personal amenities. Each year, drawn from an applicant pool of 600 artists worldwide, 60 artists who meet a high standard of excellence are awarded a coveted Djerassi residency. Artists are selected through rigorous review by discipline-specific panels made up of professional artists and arts administrators.

Now in its 29th year, the Djerassi Resident Artists Program is internationally recognized as one the eminent residency programs in the United States. Since its founding, the Program has welcomed more than 1,700 artists from around the world to its rural ranch in the Santa Cruz Mountains, and is open to local, national, and international artists of all disciplines and career levels. The mission of the Djerassi Program, which is a nonprofit organization, is "to support and enhance the creativity of artists by providing uninterrupted time for work, reflection, and collegial interaction in a setting of great natural beauty, and to preserve the land upon which the Program is situated."

For more information about the residency program, go to www.djerassi.org or telephone (650) 747-1250.
