Last updated 8/15/2023 at 10:09am
Pine Meadow Ranch Center for Arts & Agriculture (PMRCAA) invites artists, ecological scientists, researchers, and scholars whose work explores the theme of "Transitions & Migration" to apply for a 2024 residency in Sisters. This residency provides a unique opportunity to explore and engage with the multifaceted aspects of migration and transformation, encompassing human movement and the interconnectedness of all living beings. The application deadline is September 30, 11:59 p.m.
The vision at PMRCAA is to connect sustainable agricultural practices, conservation, arts, and sciences with traditional and contemporary arts, crafts and skills integral to ranching life.
Residency programs at PMRCAA offer a space where cultural practitioners, ecological scientists, and creative thinkers can immerse themselves in their work and research through access to studios, open spaces, and beautiful scenery. PMRCAA seeks cultural practitioners and scientists who want to engage with the atmosphere of a working ranch and with the local community.
By examining the movement and adaptation of all living beings, including animals, plants, microorganisms, and even ideas, the program aims to capture the essence of these transitions and migrations in both the human and natural realms. The primary focus is to highlight the magnificence, resilience, and vulnerability of the planet.
"We warmly invite artists, cultural workers, scientists, scholars, and researchers to delve into the intricate complexities of migration," Laura Rubin Interim Arts Projects Coordinator, said. "By considering factors such as climate change, displacement, diaspora, urbanization, colonization, technological advancements, and the entanglements between human and non-human migrations, we hope to shed light on the multifaceted nature of these processes."
Residency opportunities are between two and four weeks and are open to artists based in the USA. All disciplines are welcome for this self-directed residency. PMRCAA will provide studio space, accommodation, stipend, access to equipment, specialized facilities and/or technical support, opportunities to develop relationships and work with local or regional artists/residents/organizations.
PMRCAA leadership will host four Zoom Q&A sessions about the 2024 residency program on August 17-18. These will be informal, attendee-oriented sessions. PMRCAA leadership will begin by sharing about the residency program, but most of the session will be designated for answering questions posed by those in attendance.
Space is limited and registration is required. Due to high demand, PMR asks ask that interested attendees register for only one of the Q&A sessions.
