Dunes Shack Residencies

The Compact Dune Shack Residency Applications for 2020 are now Open

Applications close January 15, 2020. Residencies are announced in March.

The Provincetown Community Compact offers dune shack residency applications for C-Scape and Fowler Dune Shacks in the Cape Cod National Seashore for 2020. Residencies are available April through November for the general public (Community Residencies) as well as for artists, writers and community organizations.

Community residencies are open to all and are selected by lottery. The Compact funds, or partially subsidizes, residencies for three visual artists who are selected by jury and for two writers who are selected by lottery.

In 2019 The Provincetown Community Compact designated one of the three Dune Shack Artist Residencies for an emerging artist of color, named for the late David Bethuel Jamieson, an African-American artist who died of AIDS in 1992. The top recipient of the Dune Shack Artists residency and The David Bethuel Jamieson Residency include three funded weeks in the C-Scape Dune Shack and a $500 fellowship.
