Caldera: Residencies on a volcanic lake in Central Oregon

Founded in 1996 by Dan and Bonnie Wieden, Caldera’s mission is to be a catalyst for transformation through innovative art and environmental programs. Caldera offers an artist residency program for professional artists, as well as a comprehensive arts mentoring program for underserved youth. While Caldera’s administrative headquarters are located in Portland, Oregon, its studios and arts center are located on ninety acres of mountain and forest land at the edge of a volcanic lake in Central Oregon.

Caldera’s adult program offers month-long residencies to professional artists: the gift of time & creative workspace at our Blue Lake facility in the Oregon Cascade Mountains. Caldera’s youth program provides underserved Oregon children with year-round, long-term mentoring through arts and nature projects, beginning at age eleven and continuing through young adulthood. Linking Caldera’s youth and adult programs is a passionate belief in the power of creativity.

Applications are due June 15 and can be downloaded at
