The Museum takes applications for the position of Philosopher-in-Residence, appropriate both for artists and philosophers, throughout the year. Philosophers-in-Residence enjoy solitude, uninterrupted time, and inspiring rural landscape, while completing research and writing projects in their particular areas of expertise and special interest. Open studio space can also become available for the development and creation of more involved interdisciplinary projects. Housing provided is rustic: residents live in one of several private bedrooms or shared small apartments which we’ve created in the barn which also houses the Museum. The shower, composting toilet, and kitchen facilities are shared among all Residents. Residencies usually last from 2 weeks to one month. Residents are responsible for their own transportation and food during their residency. The Museum works with each philosopher-in-residence to determine how her or his work will contribute to the museum’s overall mission and how he or she might assist the existing staff in the maintenance and production of everyday life.
