Fee schedules respective to curated residencies in our wild places are published at the time of each program announcement.  

Fees for self-directed residencies beyond our open calls are determined on a case by case basis.

Residencies are available for periods of a few days, one week, two weeks, three weeks, or one month.

We support artists in acquiring funding from their local governments and arts organizations by providing letters of invitation and support for travel grant applications.

The Wild: Artist In Residence saves money for a rainy day, and whenever possible, provides scholarship support to selected artists.  Funding for The Wild A.i.R. Scholarships are generated from public and private donations, sponsors, and our annual event 'The Rainy Day Café': a salon, symposia, concert, dinner, and art show at the Wild Mill Studios in memory of Michael Stuart Burke.  Recipients of a 'Rainy Day Scholarship' are required to donate an artwork, talk, or performance back to the Rainy Day Café, in support of future resident artists.
