Cascadia Artist in Residence Network Summit (& upcoming residency deadlines)

Last weekend Playa Foundation for the Arts in Central Oregon hosted the Cascadia Artist in Residence Network Summit. Sixteen artist residency administrators gathered to talk about how we might work together to better serve artists. Topics such as hospitality, equity, and the usual fundraising came up, among others. For a small organization like Artsmith, it's a wonderful opportunity to learn from larger, long-standing residencies such as Hedgebrook, Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, and Centrum. Above are views from my studio window watching the sunrise over the playa, and into my studio, lit by the morning sun.
