These unique, short-term residencies offer competitive opportunities for emerging and mid-career photographers and makers.

Scholarships: All residencies are currently financially subsidized in order to make them accessible to emerging artists.  In addition, Makers Circle acknowledges the financial and cultural inequity that exists in many arts institutions and feel committed to extending our resources and support to people from communities that have been marginalized, oppressed or economically disadvantaged. If you need a full or partial scholarship, please don't hesitate to mention that in your application.
