Envision new possibilities.

The first residency sessions running from 2020 through 2021, are by invitation only. In collaboration with the Alliance of Artists Communities, Loghaven has convened a selection panel to furnish nominations. This process will allow us to dedicate ourselves to the task of implementing best practices across the new residency and prepare for future open calls.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Loghaven has postponed our inaugural open call for residency applications from June 1, 2020 to June 1, 2021. It is deeply important to us to honor our commitments to artists, so we did not cancel any residencies, but rather shifted some from 2020 into 2021. Changing the date of our open call enables us to serve all the artists who we had already committed to support and ensures that we have a full capacity of residency sessions available for artists who want to take part in our open application process. 

Loghaven’s first open call for applications will be June 1 through July 15, 2021, for residencies in 2022. At that time, practicing artists whose work falls into the disciplines of writing (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, screenwriting, and journalism), visual arts, dance, theater, music composition, and interdisciplinary work may apply. Both emerging and established professional artists are encouraged to submit applications. Applications are accepted through SlideRoom. Applicants should read the website carefully before applying, including the FAQs. Artists currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program are not eligible. Applicants must be at least twenty-one years old and live more than two hours away by car from Knoxville.
