Application Process and Guidelines
In addition to examples of your work and a resume, the application requires a description of your project and how working in the dunes will enhance your project and its value to PHT’s program. Applications are reviewed by a jury of PHT members for their relevancy to shack life, diversity of disciplies, and impact on the local community. All awardees will display their work in a group show (date tbd). If you are selected, you are agreeing send work either made during the residency or inspired by it for inclusion in the exhibition. It is therefore very important that you clearly explain how your work will be presented/displayed.
In your plans and preparations, remember that you will be hauling all your own belongings, plus food, in and out of the shack, on your own. A volunteer caretaker will escort you in the PHT truck. Their primary job is shack caretaker and to introduce you to what you need to know to live lightly in the dunes.
