Welcome to the Sitka Fellows Program

The 2015 Sitka Fellows stand outside Allan Point Cabin, located on an island in Alaska's Tongass National Forest wilderness. Each year, the Fellows have a three-day retreat at a cabin like this one to kick off their residency.

A creative residency on the edge of wilderness

The Sitka Fellows Program is a multidisciplinary group residency program on the Sitka Fine Arts Campus in Sitka, AK, for emerging artists, activists, and thinkers under the age of 30. The program offers a chance for passionate individuals to immerse themselves in their work alongside people from different backgrounds and disciplines.

The program is founded on the belief that great work is grounded in community and place, and that the conversations amongst fellows and with their environment are potent and valuable. It provides an unparalleled space for fellows to create new work on the edge of a beautiful, vibrant wilderness.
