The total cost for a four-week residency is $4,000. Artists who are able to cover their own costs increase HDC’s ability to assist those who cannot, but acceptance to HDC is based upon quality of work and professional references, not the ability to contribute financially. It is hoped that some artists will be able to make a charitable donation of $500 – $1,000 to help defray some of the cost of their residency, but HDC will make every effort to help invited artists who are in need of financial support.
Applications can be submitted at any time during the year. The director will then advise you how to proceed by return email. You MAY be asked to submit additional work samples, professional references, a curriculum vitae, or a more comprehensive description of the work you intend to accomplish. You MAY be asked to submit financial information regarding your personal income. Final applications are reviewed by an outside panel of jurors and the director. Repeat residencies are permitted every three years.
