The Peter Bullough Foundation focuses on providing residencies to emerging artists and scholars, including those elevating voices and topics relevant to the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Applications are now being accepted for spring 2022 residencies to use the private studios and enjoy the garden and former homes of Dr. Peter Bullough in downtown historic Winchester, Virginia. The ideal applicant will be self-directed and able to work independently. We hope that while here residents will take advantage of local community events. Each awarded residency period is roughly four weeks long and is shared with one other artist in residence. Artistic collaborators in groups of two to three may apply in one application. The PBF accepts applications from artists working in the following disciplines: architecture, literature, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, music composition, playwriting, screenwriting, poetry, scholars, theatre, and the visual arts.

Spring 2022 Residency Dates
January 19 - February 15

Selection is a multi-step process involving the PBF staff, residency committee, 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 Foundation 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:
The Peter Bullough Foundation is delighted to offer free accommodations for two artists at a time in Dr. Bullough’s former home, a renovated 1840’s house with private bedrooms and bathrooms and shared common spaces. Private studios and workspaces are located in an adjacent building that also houses the majority of Dr. Bullough’s book and art collections. Private 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. 

Winchester, Virginia is a quintessential American small town, with four locally-owned breweries, many small shops, 10 different historic house museums, a kids science museum, and a large regional art museum.
