The Compact is pleased to offer 3 artist residencies and a writers residency between May and October of 2020 in a one of nineteen historic and primitive dwellings located within Peaked Hill Bars National Register Historic District of the Cape Cod National Seashore. The dune shacks are primitive — no electricity or indoor plumbing — and isolated, allowing for uninterrupted solitude and refuge. The Compact funds, or partially subsidizes, these residencies.
The Provincetown Community Compact designates one of the three residencies, The David Bethuel Jamieson Residency, for an emerging artist of color, named for an African-American artist who lived and worked in Provincetown and died of AIDS in 1992. The top recipient of the Dune Shack Artists residency and The David Bethuel Jamieson Residency include three funded weeks in the C-Scape Dune Shack and a $500 fellowship
