Overview

In collaboration with Washington State University, artist and educator Peter Christenson has initiated a cultural capital scholar residency in Richland, WA and is currently seeking proposals from creatives with diverse backgrounds and research agendas to participate in the community-based residency. Innovative and socially conscious scholars and practitioners working in a variety of fields and industries including the visual arts, architecture, engineering, urban planning, social work, design and media arts, creative writing & literature, culinary arts, etc. are encouraged to apply.

Selected residents will stay at the “Guest House,” a living-learning community of Washington State University in Richland, WA for a short-term period of 1 week – 1 month based on proposal, room availability, and project objectives. Proposals should seek to connect to and build the cultural capital of the Tri-Cities area, a metropolitan community in eastern Washington. Residents will be invited to lead an educational/creative event/activity/lecture open to WSU students and the community at large and donate a piece of research/art to the GH Cultural Capital permanent collection. There is no fee to apply and housing for the scholar will be covered for the duration of the residency.

To apply, please email a CV, link to portfolio / research, and a 2-page (maximum) proposal to GHCC Residency Director Peter Christenson with subject heading “GHCC Residency.” Applications are on a rolling basis; proposals should be sent to: peter.christenson@wsu.edu
