Rockland Residency

Name of Residency: Rockland Woods 2020

Rockland Residency is open to dedicated artists engaged in a creative process involving and not limited to: visual art, writing, music, performance, social practice and new media. Rockland supports artists to generate new ideas by momentarily removing daily-life obstacles by providing time and space (and sometimes food) to obtain their highest creative thought possible. Although there is opportunity, there are no obligations to produce, perform or present.

Rockland Woods is the property location of our residencies on the Kitsap Peninsula one and a half hours west of Seattle, WA, USA. There is a Lodge, canvas tents, ceramics studio and woodshop, in addition to private work spaces. Winter Residency is 2 weeks in January open to local artists.  Summer Residency is 3 weeks in July or August open to international/national artists.  Groups tend to be 8-15 residents at a time with a hired chef (Summer Program Only) to prepare lunch and dinner. The property consists of a non-motorized lake and 15-acres of lush forest with small trails.
