There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Please contact us at arts@jackstraw.org or 206-634-0919 if this application format is not accessible to you for any reason.

Our artist residency programs - the Jack Straw Artist Support Program, New Media Gallery Program, and Writers Program - offer established and emerging artists in diverse disciplines an opportunity to explore the creative use of sound in a professional atmosphere through residencies in our recording studios, training, and participation in our various presentation programs. 


Artists may only apply for one of our artist residency programs each year. 

Established and emerging artists working in any discipline or genre may apply to any one of the residency programs offered. Artists living outside of the Puget  Sound region may apply, but should be aware that expenses for travel, lodging, etc. are not included in the award. Artists may apply as individuals or in teams.

Current Jack Straw staff, interns, board members, or their immediate family members may not apply. Artists participating in 2019 programs may not apply again for the same program in 2020. However, they may apply for a program in which they did not participate in the previous calendar year.
