Bunnell Street Arts Center’s Artist Residency Program
Bunnell Street Arts Center’s Artist in Residence program features Alaska, national and international artists for residencies of varying lengths, from one week to one month. Residencies may be invitational, sponsored, or through Bunnell’s juried residency program, “Alaska AIR.”
ALASKA AIR ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
Bunnell’s “Alaska AIR” Artist in Residence program is a juried residency award. Applications are accepted September 15 – October 31. There is a $25 application fee. (Needs-based waivers are available). Applicants are notified by December 31.
One to four Alaska AIR residencies are awarded annually, depending upon Bunnell’s funding and scheduling. The Alaska AIR jury is comprised of Bunnell artists, staff, board and community members.
Alaska AIR residencies are generally scheduled for one month, October through April. The program provides round-trip travel to Homer (up to $1000), a stipend of $2000 per month, and lodging (private room w/ private bath & shared living/kitchen area). Residents have access to Bunnell’s 1000 square foot studio/gallery space.
The Alaska AIR program seeks artists looking to create new work and deeply engage Bunnell’s community. Bunnell seeks artists to strengthen the social, physical and economic fabric of Homer through the arts by addressing pertinent themes. These may include accessibility, inclusion, decolonization, sustainability, skills sharing and exchange, enhancing community well being, and/or artistic strategies to build connections between local and global communities. Mediums include, but are not limited to, visual, literary and performing arts, social and civic practice, ephemeral art, moving image, movement, music composition and performance. Learn more here.

Indigenous Residency Series (IRS) is a multi-year program with three artists—Anthony Hudson, Arias Hoyle and Steven Paul Judd—working with host organizations PICA, Bunnell Street Arts Center and NM Bodecker Foundation, respectively. In addition to developing their work independently and in collaboration with their host organization, the artists are meeting virtually throughout the process to build connections between their communities, and to share the work with the public.
