C-Scape Dune Shack

stacks_image_105_1C-Scape is one of 19 shacks located within the Peaked Hill Bars National Register Historic District. The primitive nature of the structure—no electricity, indoor plumbing, or telephone—and its physical isolation allow for uninterrupted solitude and refuge. The dwelling is a 1 1/2 story, three- room structure, including a studio and wood stove. It has a propane cooking stove and small refrigerator, and a composting toilet.

Artist-in-Residence: Program for visual artists. Three 3-week stays in summer, with one including a $500 Fellowship. Artists must participate in the National Seashore’s Interpretive Program, once per week, in which a group of up to 10 visitors will visit the shack. Residencies will be awarded by the Project Review Committee. (Students not eligible.) This is a highly competitive program.

Thank you for your interest in the dune shack residencies.  Check back with us in November for our 2017 online application.
