About Sitka Residencies
Each resident is given a separate private fully furnished living quarters with full kitchen. No stipend is provided. Laundry facilities are available on campus. Residents are responsible for providing their own food, cleaning, and transportation while in residence. Internet and email access is available.

Sitka Center is located seven miles from the nearest town (Lincoln City) and is within privately owned Cascade Head Ranch. Public transportation access is approximately three miles away. While the majority of day-to-day needs can be purchased in Lincoln City, many art supplies are not readily available, and must be purchased in Portland, a 2-hour drive from the Center. The Sitka Center borders a Nature Conservancy Preserve, the Siuslaw National Experimental Forest and the Salmon River Estuary, and is located within a National Scenic Research area and a United Nations Biosphere Reserve.

Resident Community Service Component
In exchange for living and studio space, each resident is asked to provide a negotiated amount of community service on behalf of Sitka. Community service may take the form of lectures in the community, research for the organization, teaching in local schools, etc. Each resident is encouraged to discuss options for community service with staff upon arrival. No stipend is offered.
