Pine Meadow Ranch Center for Arts & Agriculture (PMRCAA) is inviting artists, ecological scientists and scholars whose work explores the theme of Care & Stewardship to apply for a 2025 residency in Sisters, Oregon (USA). Deadline to apply: June 30th, 2024.


The vision of PMRCAA is to connect sustainable agricultural practices, conservation, arts, and sciences with traditional and contemporary arts, crafts and skills integral to ranching life. PMRCAA’s residency program offers a space where cultural practitioners, ecological scientists, and creative thinkers can immerse themselves in their work and research through access to studios, open spaces, and beautiful scenery. PMRCAA seeks cultural practitioners and scientists who want to engage with the atmosphere of a working ranch and with the local community.


At its core, the theme Care & Stewardship beckons reflection upon reciprocal responsibility we hold as stewards of the Earth. It prompts us to consider the consequences of our actions, both immediate and in the future, on ecosystems, biodiversity, and future generations. Yet, its reach extends far beyond interpersonal dynamics to encompass the stewardship of our environment, the pursuit of social justice, and the cultivation of collective well-being. Through this exploration, PMRCAA invites artists, scientists, scholars, and cultural bearers to critically engage with the concept of care, probing its intersections with issues of social justice, environmental sustainability, and ethical responsibility.
