Artists will be expected to have a continuous public and visitor presence  throughout their residency. Further, the artist will present, at  minimum, one 1-hour public program, workshop, concert or lecture during  their residency at Gettysburg National Military Park during their stay.  This can be presented either the park or another venue as deemed by NPAF  and NPS. Poet/Artists must provide their own transportation, supplies  and equipment for these presentations. We also encourage poet/artists to  give more public presentations at the park and in their own community  about their residency experience in Gettysburg National Military Park,  to further broaden the reach of the program’s purpose and the goals of  perpetuating poetry and it's importance.

Other presentations or activities will may be scheduled by  arrangement with NPS. The artist will usually present at least one  workshop, lecture or concert and the possibility of an arts donation for  the NPS National Museum Collection. This can be presented either the  park or another venue as deemed appropriate by NPAF and NPS. ALL EVENTS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND/OR CANCELLATION.
