The Peter Bullough Foundation in historic downtown Winchester, Virginia provides residencies to emerging artists and scholars, including those elevating voices and topics relevant to the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Applications are now being accepted for spring 2023 residencies to work in the private studios and enjoy the garden and former homes of Dr. Peter Bullough. The ideal applicant will be self-directed and able to work independently. Each awarded residency period is roughly four weeks and is shared with one to two other artists in residence. Collaborators in groups of two to three may apply in one application. We encourage artists to host a community workshop or lecture virtually or in-person during the residency.
