Rabbit Island Residency (USA)

Rabbit Island is 90 acres of forest and sandstone rising out of Lake Superior, four miles east of Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula. It is a unique environment home to a variety of flora and fauna including large white pines,red maples, bald eagles, nesting birds, salamanders, and more. Native lake trout and salmon swim in the waters surrounding the island. The weather is palpable and can vary day to day, creating beautiful vistas and humbling experiences. A conservation easement insures that the island’s ecosystem will remain protected forever.

The Rabbit Island Residency is open to individual applicants worldwide. Small collaborative groups (2-3 people) may also apply. The minimum age requirement is 21. The residency is open to visual artists of all disciplines, as well as writers, poets, architects, designers (graphic or industrial), musicians, filmmakers, composers, and choreographers.

Each year, up to three applications will receive funding to travel to, live on, and make work amongst the forest, rocks, and wildlife of the island and the vast waters of Lake Superior that surround it. Please note that there is a US$20 fee for the application. 

Deadline: 22 August
