The Djerassi Program is located in a spectacular rural setting in the Santa Cruz Mountains over-looking the Pacific Ocean, yet is within easy driving distance of San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area. Each four-week residency session is comprised of eight artists in the disciplines of visual arts, media arts, music composition, choreography and literature. It is designed as a retreat experience to pursue personal creative work and share in collegial interaction within a small community of artists. In this spirit residents are expected to commit themselves for the entire bursary session awarded to them.
The Visual Arts Studio has large wall space with high ceilings, a sink, fluorescent and incandescent lighting, skylights, separate sleeping loft, and a wood burning stove. There is also a large covered area outside where artists may work on projects.
Applications must be postmarked by October 31, 2011 for a bursary/residency in 2012.
Applicants will be notified of selection by email in February 2012.
