Gates of the Arctic is a unique and remote park. This in turn creates a unique Artist in Residence program. As you think about your proposal keep the following tips in mind:

  • Spend time researching the park before creating a proposal
  • Your proposal should explain how the art project will benefit the National Park Service, Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve, and/or the cause of Wilderness
  • Collaborative applications are encouraged but should demonstrate how the collaborative effort is essential to the project proposed
  • Be sure your application is complete. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Use the Checklist (page two of the application)
  • Familiarize yourself with the evaluation criteria
