Yaddo / Deadline: August 1


Yaddo is located on a 400-acre turn-of-the-century estate at the foot of the Adirondack Mountains in Saratoga Springs, New York, Yaddo’s mission is to nurture the creative process by providing an opportunity for artists to work without interruption in a supportive environment. Yaddo offers residencies to professional creative artists from all nations and backgrounds working in one or more of the following media: choreography, film, literature, musical composition, painting, performance art, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and video. In addition to artist living and working facilities, there are winding roads and paths through the woods, a tennis court, a swimming pool, a pool table, a ping-pong table, and a supply of bicycles to be shared by guests. Yaddo maintains several small libraries, including one of books by Yaddo authors.

Residencies generally run two weeks to two months.

Yaddo welcomes emerging as well as established artists to apply. Artists who qualify for Yaddo residencies are working at the professional level in their fields. An abiding principle at Yaddo is that applications for residency are judged on the quality of the artist’s work and professional promise. Yaddo accepts approximately 200 artists each year.

The application fee is $35, plus a fee for media uploads, depending on the discipline, of $5 to $10. Contact Candace Wait, Program Director, at chwait@yaddo.org, with questions and concerns.
