Tusen Takk 2021 Artist Residency

Application Period: June 15-August 15, 2020
Residency Period: March-December 2021

Located on an isolated peninsula in Northwest Michigan, Tusen Takk provides artists with an inspiring architectural space to both intensely focus on their work and pause to reflect on past and future directions. The program's 3- to 12-week residencies are geared for accomplished artists to explore new ideas or expand current work that affirms and enriches the human spirit, giving form to chaos and perception to beauty. A residency at Tusen Takk is a time to create; it’s also a time for artists to consider how their work engages with the history of its medium and how it intersects with existential questions of meaning and purpose.

Tusen Takk was designed to host one resident, or two in collaboration. The single most important qualification for an artist is that they have created a body of work that exemplifies excellence, having significantly contributed to their artistic field or poised to do so. Tusen Takk welcomes applications from both emerging and established visual artists in photography, printmaking, sculpture, painting, fiber arts, as well as writers and composers. Artists must be self-motivated so they can be productive in the isolation afforded by a residency. They must also be open to sharing insights with audiences about their work and processes.

Artists-in-residence are provided housing with 24/7 access to the Foundation’s Studios. In addition, residents can use the founder's library and collection as a resource and are provided financial support in the form of an honorarium at $625/week. While in residence, artists are highly encouraged to give a workshop, studio visit, talk; or a public presentation or performance in collaboration with one of the Foundation’s partner organizations.
