MORE ABOUT THE JAMES CASTLE HOUSE

MORE ABOUT THE BOISE CITY DEPARTMENT OF ARTS & HISTORY


Boise City Department of Arts & History invites emerging and mid-career artists to apply for a Short Stay at the James Castle House. These condensed 10-day residencies are designed to provide time and space to encourage an immersive focus on a single project. The James Castle House is dedicated to continuing the legacy of creation and daily practice instilled by Castle's time on site, and encouraging community involvement through the arts. To this aim, we ask that each artist live and work on-site through the duration of the residency term, and host an Open Studio at the end of their stay to share their work with the Boise community. 

Each residency cycle provides one artist with private furnished living quarters and studio space with access to a variety of tools on site. The James Castle House also provides a bicycle for easy access to Boise's Downtown and nearby foothills. Resident artists will receive a $500.00 stipend, as well as support through the promotion of their Open Studio. 

Interested applicants should submit a concise proposal outlining their project, related work samples, resume, and a brief statement explaining why this residency is right for the proposed project.

January 17-27, 2020
