Peter Bullough Foundation Artist Residency

The Peter Bullough Foundation provides residencies for emerging artists and scholars with diverse backgrounds and interests. We hope to create a community that elevates voices that are underserved, including those of the LGBTQIA2S+ community. The ideal applicant will be self-directed, able to work independently, and interested in engaging with the local community. Each awarded residency period is roughly four weeks long and is shared with one or two other artists in residence. Artistic collaborators in groups of two to three may apply in one application. While in residence, artists are required to host a community workshop, lecture, or event virtually or in-person.

The PBF accepts applications from artists working in the following disciplines: architecture, literature, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, music, music composition, playwriting, screenwriting, poetry, theatre, and the visual arts.

Artists from across the US may apply for our month-long Spring and Fall Residencies which provide studio and living space for emerging artists while they pursue their craft. Our Local Summer Residencies provide free studio space for Shenandoah Valley artists.

PROGRAM

The Peter Bullough Foundation provides fall and spring residencies to emerging artists and scholars with diverse backgrounds and interests. A residency is a radical, experimental community of trust; we seek to create a space that elevates voices that have been historically underserved, including those of the LGBTQIA2S+ community.

The ideal applicant will be self-directed, motivated, able to work independently, and interested in engaging with the local community. Each awarded residency period is roughly 4 weeks long and is shared with 1-2 other artists in residence, making it a very intimate experience. Artistic collaborators in groups of 2-3 may apply in one application.

Supporting our local community is crucial to our mission. While in residence, artists are required to host a workshop, lecture, or event virtually or in-person.
