Artists in all media are invited to apply for the 2016 White Mountain National Forest (WMNF) Artist-in-Residence program, a collaboration between the WMNF, the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire and Friends of Mead Base.
The program highlights the ways in which the arts can be used to explore and interpret the forest environment and forest-related ideas and issues.
The residency offers professional and emerging artists in any art form from around the country (visual and performing artists, craftspeople, writers, composers and choreographers, eco artists and media artists) an opportunity to pursue their work while being inspired by the surrounding forest and, on several occasions, share their art and their artistic process with members of the public. Artists in residence are also invited to meet with and learn from Forest Service personnel in their areas of interest (wildlife, forestry, hydrology, etc.).
Applications will be accepted through March 15.
The artist selected will choose a period of at least three weeks
between July and September to be in residence.
