Caldera’s Artists in Residence program offers the gift of time and space on the eastern slopes of Oregon's Cascade mountain range. Month long stays offer, private accommodations, 24-hour access to studios, and a weekly meal. By design, residents form a small community of 7–12 artists, depending on the group. Community outreach and collaborations are encouraged. For general guidelines, please refer to: http://www.calderaarts.org/caldera/arts-in-residence/

Caldera has 12 partner schools: six in central Oregon and six in Portland. In each school, Caldera offers one week-long residency per year taught to the whole school that culminates in a school-wide presentation or exhibit.

Caldera’s 2015 – 2016 program theme is “The Geography of We: Our Solar Constant.” Caldera’s artistic theme is transmedia. Through various mediums/platforms we look to tell stories inspired from such questions as: Where is your brilliance? What is your energy source? Where is your power and what is your sphere of influence? How does the sun produce light? And color? How do we collect energy from the sun? How do plants & animals use the sun? Where does your community shine? Where is your community in the shadows? How has the sun affected/influenced people throughout history?

Proposals are open for applicants to design one-week programs in 1 or more schools in Portland and Central Oregon tailored to the unique needs of each community. An example of a typical residency may be: 4 classes per day of 30 students each for 5 days. Residency Dates: November 1, 2015 – April 30, 2016

Teaching in schools can correspond to residency times or can be arranged at different times then residency.

Innovative proposals by experienced teachers are sought. A panel of Caldera education staff will select applicants.
