Tusen Takk Residency Program

Tusen Takk’s residencies are geared for artists to explore new ideas or expand current work. We look for ideas and work that will affirm and enrich the human spirit, giving form to chaos and perception to beauty.

Tusen Takk was designed to host one resident, or two in collaboration, for residencies between three and eight weeks. The single most important qualification for artists invited to Tusen Takk is that they have created a body of work that exemplifies excellence and has (or could) significantly contribute(d) to their artistic field. Tusen Takk welcomes applications from both emerging and established visual artists in photography, printmaking, sculpture, painting, as well as creative writers and music composers.

Artists should be self-motivated so they can be productive in the isolation afforded by a residency with a giving spirit that’s exemplified by a willingness to share insights with audiences about their work and processes. While in residence, artists are encouraged to engage with the local arts community; this could take the shape of a small-scale workshop or studio visit, or a public artist’s talk, exhibition, or performance, either virtually or in collaboration with one of the Foundation’s partner organizations. Applications are due on July 15, 2021 for residencies between June 2022 and June 2023.

Highlights of the studios include: a digital imaging studio outfitted with two Epson P9000 commercial edition printers and two Epson 9880 printers (all with a maximum output width of 44"), an etching studio designed to make photogravures with a 30" x 50" etching press and 24” x 36” NuArc platemaker, and a darkroom with a 16' long sink and three enlargers.
