The Djerassi Program is located in a spectacular rural setting in the Santa Cruz Mountains over-looking the Pacific Ocean, yet is within easy driving distance of San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area. Each four-week residency session is comprised of eight artists in the disciplines of visual arts, media arts, music composition, choreography and literature. It is designed as a retreat experience to pursue personal creative work and share in collegial interaction within a small community of artists. In this spirit residents are expected to commit themselves for the entire bursary session awarded to them.
The Djerassi Resident Artists Program in partnership with UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists is offering a one-month bursary / residency for one visual artist during the 2012 season.
