Jack Straw Productions, the Northwest’s nonprofit audio arts center, has awarded residencies in the 2013 Artist Support Program (ASP) and 2013-2014 New Media Gallery Program to 23 artists and artist teams spanning multiple disciplines and genres. The primary goal of Jack Straw Artist Residency Programs is to support audio as a vital medium in the arts. Our Residency Programs offer established and emerging artists opportunities to explore the creative use of sound in a professional atmosphere through residencies in our recording studios and participation in our various presentation programs. Artists for the Artist Support Program are selected by an interdisciplinary peer panel. Selected artists are listed below.

The Artist Support Program is open to artists of all disciplines whose project proposals include sound as a major component. Selected projects are presented to the public at our Artist Showcase/Meet the Artist events and Composer Spotlight series.
