Provincetown, MA USA Dune Shack Residency

Solitude. Primitive. Inspiring.

Description of residency program
The Compact is pleased to offer stays in the historic dune shacks Fowler and C-Scape from April to November through an agreement with the Cape Cod National Seashore. While stays in the shacks are  open to all, 14 out of 60 weeks weeks are set aside for selected artists, writers and organizations

Accommodation & Studio/ workspace
The C-Scape dune shack, where the artist residency is located,  is one of 19 shacks located within the Dune Shacks of the Peaked Hill Bars National Register Historic District. The primitive nature of the structure—no electricity, indoor plumbing, or telephone—and its physical isolation allow for uninterrupted solitude and refuge. The dwelling is a 1 1/2 story, three- room structure, including a studio and wood stove. It has a propane cooking stove and small refrigerator along with a composting toilet.

Fees and support
We offer a $500 fellowship to one Artist In Residence and we partially  subsidize weeks for three jury-selected visual artists. Each year two  weeks for writers are funded as well.
