Free Accommodation, access to Bloedel Reserve
Selected residents stay in a well-appointed home on Bloedel grounds and are given unlimited access to the beauty of the 150-acre public garden. These multi-week retreats will allow participants long stretches of uninterrupted time in a breath-taking environment.
- Open to both established and emerging artists, composers, writers, botanists, landscape architects, researchers, and others exploring the themes of nature and the human connection with nature. (No dedicated studio space available at this time)
- Project or research must relate to nature.
- Special consideration given to projects that explore the connection between people and nature.
- Designed by noted Northwest architect Jim Cutler, this two-bedroom, two-bath home is built over a stream with natural light, high-quality finishes and furnishings.
- Tucked into the woods off the trail from regular Bloedel visitors.
- Three to four week residencies.
- Residents stay one at a time – no overlap.
- Bloedel asks that each participant provide a presentation, workshop or concert to the public in return for their stay.
