Description: This program encourages visual and performing artists to examine environmental issues and severity of the climate crisis to promote dialogue and positive change for the natural environment and world at large. Artists are invited to address environmental themes including (but not limited to) excess heat, drought, flooding, extreme weather events, food insecurity, displacement, environmental justice and the loss of biodiversity. See website for more info.

Award: Six-week to two-month residency; $2500 stipend. In exchange for comfortable rustic housing, access to studio space, financial and staff support for the development of new work, artists will gift an artwork, temporary installation or project addressing climate change as a donation to the Bernheim Foundation. Recipients are also asked to engage the public with their work and/or process while in residence.  

Eligibility: Applicants may be emerging or established artists on a regional, national or international level. Applicants must be professional visual artists. Students in undergrad studies may not apply.

Deadline: 11:59 pm PST, Dec. 15, 2021
