The Peter Bullough Foundation in historic downtown Winchester, Virginia provides intimate, focused residencies to emerging artists and writers, including those elevating voices and topics relevant to the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Applications are now being accepted for fall 2024 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, motivated, able to work independently, and interested in engaging with the local community and fellow residents. Each awarded residency period is four weeks long and shared with 1-2 other artists in residence. Artistic collaborators in groups of 2-3 may apply in one application. 

Supporting our local community is crucial to our mission. While in residence, artists are required to host a workshop, lecture, or event virtually or in-person.

Disciplines Accepted:
Visual arts, literature, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, music/music composition, playwriting, screenwriting, poetry, scholars, theatre, and architecture.

Fall 2024 Residency Dates
August 22 - September 17
September 26 - October 22 
October 24 - November 19

We look for people who desire to be part of a community and who are ready and open to receiving the benefits of our local community, the PBF, and their fellow residents. We seek out artists who are serious about their work and who can be self-directed in further developing it. Those who consider themselves or their practice emerging and who are in need of resources such as time and space to further their practice will find a home here, as will those in the queer community. We look for those for whom this residency will be a turning point and who will find this experience impactful. Finally, Dr. Bullough admired nonconformity and authenticity of expression. We value those with a different way of seeing.

Selection is a multi-step process involving the PBF staff, residency alumni, and board. We may request an interview with you to learn more about you and your work. Selections will be announced 30-45 days after the application deadline. The PBF does not discriminate in its programs and activities on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, religion, creed, national origin, age, and/or disability.

Accommodations & Support:
Free accommodations are offered in Dr. Bullough’s former home, a renovated 1840’s house with private bedrooms and shared common spaces and bathrooms. Private studios and workspaces are located in an adjacent building that also houses the majority of the late Dr. Bullough’s book and art collections. Gardens connect the properties and are also available as open-air workspaces.

A $550 stipend is provided to aid in covering supplies, necessities, and food for the month.
