Tusen Takk Foundation

Tusen Takk 2022-23 Artist Residency
Due Jul 15 2021

Application period: April 15 - July 15, 2021
Residency period: June 2022 - December 2023

Tusen Takk’s three- to eight- week residencies are geared for artists to explore new ideas or expand current work. We look for ideas and work that will affirm and enrich the human spirit, giving form to chaos and perception to beauty.

Tusen Takk was designed to host one resident, or two in collaboration. The single most important qualification for artists invited to Tusen Takk is that they have created a body of work that exemplifies excellence and has (or could) significantly contribute(d) to their artistic field.

Tusen Takk welcomes applications from both emerging and established visual artists in photography, printmaking, sculpture, painting, as well as creative writers and music composers. Artists should be self-motivated so they can be productive in the isolation afforded by a residency with a giving spirit that’s exemplified by a willingness to share insights with audiences about their work and processes. While in residence, artists are asked to engage with the local arts community, in either a private (workshop, studio visit) or public setting (artist's talk, exhibition, performance).

Artists-in-residence are provided housing with 24/7 access to the Foundation’s Studios. Financial assistance is provided to the artist in the form of an honorarium of $625/week. Arrangements can be made to use the Peckham Library and Collection as a resource for learning and inspiration.

Tusen Takk hosts six to eight residencies each year between the months of March and December filled by applications submitted to an open call.
