Organization Name: Guest House Cultural Capital Scholar Residency (GHCCRes)

Organization Location: Richland, WA

Type: Residencies

Fee: Free


Open Call for Proposals: The Guest House Cultural Capital Residency (GHCCRes) is a visiting scholar residency program in Richland, WA. The GHCCRes welcomes creative scholars with diverse backgrounds and research agendas to participate in the community-based residency. Innovative and socially conscious 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. The GHCCRes seeks to serve as a forum of discourse for all communities, particularly seeking input and counsel from marginalized, disconnected, underrepresented and/or disenfranchised groups across the state, especially in eastern Washington.

Selected residents stay in Richland, WA and join the Tri-Cities community 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 develop and lead educational and creative activities and projects as well as provide academic lectures open to the Tri-Cities community at large. We are particularly interested in collaborative research and proposed projects that seek to engage the regional geography and environment, rural arts and place-making and the Tri-Cities constituency at large. There is no fee to apply and housing for the scholar will be covered for the duration of the residency. GHCCRes program and projects are funded, in part, with generous grants from Humanities WA and the Washington State Arts commission (ArtsWA).
