Opportunity for Emerging Artists - Tofte Lake Center

    Notice of an opportunity for emerging artists of all disciplines living in either MN or the 5 boroughs of NYC to apply for a subsidized residency up in the Boundary Waters of MN, at Tofte Lake Center, http://toftelake.com/, made possible by the Jerome Foundation.

    Tofte Lake Center is sponsoring its 4th annual Emerging Artists Program which enables both individual creative artists and a collaborative team of artists to take time and attention to focus on their current work.  This program subsidizes 2 week-long residencies for 7 emerging artists, and 1 week-long residency for a performing arts project that would have exclusive use of the facilities. Please note that applicants must live in either MN or one of the 5 NYC boroughs to be eligible to apply.
 The residencies at TLC are intentionally interdisciplinary in nature. Artists from several disciplines can apply: playwriting, poetry, prose writing, painting, music composition, and dance.  We would be happy to accept applicants who sculpt, produce films, are photographers, work with crafts; we are, however, more limited in terms of the materials we can provide.  The underlying philosophy is to provide space and means of support for individual artists wishing to further their creative endeavors in the visual, literary or performing arts. The dramaturgical assistance of TLC director Liz Engelman is available if desired.


    We define “emerging artists” as those who have not attained name recognition in their profession/field by having a body of critically recognized work (at least 3 major productions, showings, exhibits, books) at major and well-known institutions/publishers.

    Group Project Week: July 9 - August 4 Individual Artist Weeks: September 9 - 15, and 16 - 22 Each artist will receive an honorarium, meal, and travel stipend of $800. Accommodations There are 7 sleeping areas in four cabins.  2 cabins are solo cabins, the other five sleeping areas are either bedrooms or lofts in shared cabins.  Each artist will have his/her own room/loft. Application And Selection Timeline December 15: Applications available March 1: Application Deadline May 15: Recipients Notified
