I wanted to post a reminder that the 2020 Alaska Voices of the Wilderness residency application period runs through March 1st - If this residency isn’t already on your radar, please check it out and consider applying!
I was selected in 2016 (after my 3rd time applying) to travel to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge with a group of biologists doing field work on the tundra. It was a phenomenal experience; unlike many artist residencies, this program pairs artists with rangers and scientists actively working in the field, providing a wonderful opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the environment and natural history of these epic wild Alaskan spaces (there are 12 locations open for residency this summer, offered through the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and National Park Service).
Application deadline is March 1st.
