PLAYA, in south central Oregon, is a retreat for creative individuals who are committed and passionate about their work and who will benefit from time spent in a remote location. PLAYA offers space and solitude and the opportunity for interaction with a community of residents. If desired, residents can outreach to the local community, schools, theaters, and art centers. Away from the urgencies of daily life, residents can focus on projects, immerse in a desert landscape of basin and rangeland, and find inspiration through self-directed inquiry.

PLAYA has two application deadlines on the following dates: September 1 (for spring sessions running January-June) and March 1 (for fall sessions running August-December). For questions regarding these upcoming residencies or for general information, please email info@playasummerlake.org.
