Company Description

The MacDowell Colony is a leading contemporary arts organization located in Peterborough, NH.
Since 1907, our mission has been to create a space where inspiration happens on a daily basis. We do that by providing essential support for emerging and established artists by bringing together diverse, multidisciplinary talent to exchange ideas and pursue creative work.

Job Description

The MacDowell Colony provides time and space for artists to work on creative projects. The Colony has expanded its support for journalists by providing additional residencies and project funding of up to $2,500 in addition to financial aid for accepted artists engaged in long-form journalism projects.
A MacDowell Fellowship consists of exclusive use of a studio, accommodations, and three prepared meals a day for two weeks to two months. There are no residency fees. Artists are responsible for materials and travel expenses: financial assistance is available to artists in residence based on need.
MacDowell encourages applications from artists representing the widest possible range of perspectives and demographics. The sole criterion for acceptance is artistic excellence.
The application deadline is January 15th for the Summer 2020 residency season.
