North Mountain Residency is a residency program that supports creative practices by encouraging research, conversation, and risk-taking. We are located on 400 acres of Appalachian mountainside in West Virginia, not far from Washington, DC. Residents are provided comfortable studio and living space, access to forest and apple orchards, research assistance, and small group critiques. While on site, residents are encouraged to engage in the ecologies and cultures of West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle. We invite applications from individuals and small groups working in all types of creative practices.
