Playa, a new organization committed to the natural sciences, arts and literature in Oregon’s high desert, has extended the application deadline from July 28 to August 29 for its call for Winter/Spring residency session beginning January 2012. To apply visit www.playasummerlake.org.
“Playa offered me an unparalleled opportunity to create in an atmosphere of solitude and beauty but not isolation,” said Wyoming writer Samuel Western after participating as a spring resident.
On the edge of the Great Basin, Playa offers creative individuals the space, the solitude, and the community to reflect and to engage their work. Residencies awarded at Playa provide each resident private housing with a kitchen, a studio, and all meals provisioned for individual or group preparation. The comfortably furnished and fully equipped cabins and live-work townhouses have open vistas in an expansive landscape and are free of telephone, television, and Internet. Private work studios and research spaces, adjacent or separate from the cabins, are available to residents who require them.
One, two, and three-month residencies are provided for natural scientists, artists, and writers. Those working on interdisciplinary projects or with a collaborative team that combines natural sciences and the arts are encouraged to apply. For information about residencies, visit Playa.
