    NW Documentary Artist in Residence
    As a center for non-fiction storytelling, NW Documentary seeks to encourage and foster documentary storytellers. The success of a creative, thriving environment is based on a variety of artists of different experience levels, working under one roof. The center is a place where upcoming storytellers gain inspiration, insight, and encouragement from experienced and established professionals. Likewise, active professionals benefit from a lively community consisting of support, creative exchange, and resources that would not be available to them as solo artists working from their homes. In addition to our regular workshops, internships, and volunteer opportunities, NW Documentary offers the Artist-in-Residence program to fulfill this need.

    • Application Fee: Free
