Frontier Fellowship

Have you ever wanted to get away from it all? How about to a beautiful, alien landscape like the one above. To a town with fewer than 1,000 people? A Frontier Fellowship might be right for you. According to Epicenter:

The Frontier Fellowship provides creative professionals the opportunity to live and work in Green River, Utah (pop. 953) for a minimum of four weeks. It is sponsored by Epicenter, a design studio instigating positive change through community-based projects and programs. From this rural place, and in the context of the frontier, Fellows have the opportunity to generate new work that is informed by the surrounding desert landscape and the residents of Green River. Epicenter facilitates Fellowships throughout the year, and encourages applications regardless of one’s background, focus, or specialty.

Epicenter is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in a historic building in downtown Green River. It houses an office space, small basement workshop, outdoor workspace, five full-time employees, and volunteer groups throughout the year. While in residence, Fellows spend half their time working on personal projects and half their time contributing to a project initiated by Epicenter. Fellows are given printing privileges, internet access, use of a bicycle, Family Meal Plan membership, use of tools, and workspace. The Fellowship is currently both free and unpaid. However, there are funding possibilities for workshop supplies, community-based projects, and living/travel stipends.

All applications are due December 14, 2013. More info here.
