Next Hill House Artist Residency Program Deadline: April 1

Calling all artists! Internationally-attended Hill House artist residency program application deadline approaching soon

BELLAIRE, MI — Crosshatch Center for Art & Ecology’s Hill House artist residency applications for the June 2017-December 2017 residency season are due April 1.

The program supports musicians, writers, theater/performance, and visual artists. Artists who apply to the program will go through a jury process. Selected artists are awarded time and space to create new work, with a two- to four-week stay in a semi-secluded log cabin near East Jordan, Michigan. The musician residency also offers a small stipend to emerging songwriters to aid in professional development.

The cabin is surrounded by woods and is within walking distance of the Jordan River. It includes a well-stocked kitchen (with locally sourced food when seasonally available), a selection of instruments and some basic recording gear. Artists are invited, but not required, to engage in community outreach through performance, readings and workshops with coordination and promotion help from Crosshatch. The Hill House artist residency program is unique as it accepts parent artists, artists who want to bring a pet, and allows artists from different disciplines to be in residence together. The only cost for an artist to participate in the Hill House residency program is the $35 application fee.

"My Crosshatch Hill House residency provided me an invaluable opportunity to work uninterrupted, connect with the land and deepen my own understanding of what it is to be an artist and human being," says Jeff Morris, Hill House alum from January 2016 and February 2017.
