Alembic Resident Artists Program

The Alembic Resident Artist Program at PWNW offers a variety of residencies.


2-4 local artists are awarded 100-150 hours of studio time to be used within a 9-11 month period, plus an artist fee. Opportunity for sharing work is included, as well as an opportunity for an Alembic Co-Production within the the following two years.. See list below of our Alembic Alums.

Our next call for the core residency will happen in March 2023 for residencies beginning in September 2023. Click here for the most recent call for proposals, which also has more details about the parameters of and criteria for the residency.


In 2022 we held our inaugural intensive Alembic Parent Residency, in which visiting parent artist team of Corrie Befort & Jason Anderson spent two weeks in our studio, collaborating with local artists.

In 2023, we will offer a two-week residency (90 hours of studio time) to a visiting parent artist in the summer, plus a residency of 90 hours awarded to a local parent artist who can use their hours as they wish in the 9-month period beginning July 1, 2023. Both residencies include funds for child care.

Our next call for parent residencies will happen mid-December 2022. Click here for last year’s request for proposals.


Occasionally, and by invitation only, we host visiting artists. Travel expenses and per diem may be provided depending on funding. Residencies may involve research/rehearsal and creation and sharing work, informally or in a full production. Past artists include Scott Heron + Brendan Connelly, Melinda Ring Special Projects + Renée Archibald, Alice Gosti, Blake Beckham, Meg Wolfe, Danza La Barbacoa and Clare Whistler.
