Each year The Provincetown Compact offers several artist and writers residencies in the historic Fowler and C-Scape (shown below) dune shacks located within Peaked Hill Bars National Register Historic District of the Cape Cod National Seashore. The shacks are primitive lacking electricity and indoor plumbing — and isolated, allowing for uninterrupted solitude and refuge.
The Compact funds, or partially subsidizes, residencies for three visual artists who are selected by jury and for two writers who are selected by lottery. The top recipient of the artist residency will also receive a $500 fellowship.
The Deadline for residencies is January 15, 2019
