Caldera Arts

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

 At Caldera, we believe in the power of creativity. Caldera is a catalyst for the transformation of youth through innovative, year round art and environmental programs. 

Through our Artists in Residence Program, Caldera supports artists, creatives, and cultural workers to build skills, relationships, and projects that inspire growth, combat oppression, and activate change. Residents draw inspiration from the residency community and the natural world surrounding our Arts Center in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains near Sisters.

Our Youth Program provides Oregon students with long-term mentoring, beginning in sixth grade and continuing into young adulthood. Our mentors and artists nurture individual creativity to ignite self-expression and transform the way young people engage in their lives, families, and communities. Each summer, we host four eight- to ten-day camp sessions, serving over 150 youth from Portland and Central Oregon at our Arts Center. 

Caldera is an equal opportunity employer encouraging applicants of all backgrounds. We are an organization that strives to respect the race, ethnicity, ancestry, color, size, ability, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, religious background, marital status, military status, strengths, and differences of all people.
