We encourage applications for a wide range of projects from a diversity of artists, composers, directors, choreographers, and performers of different cultural and geographic backgrounds. We are open to proposals for all phases of a project, from initial concept to full production.
Applications for artist residencies are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. We recommend that you apply at least six months before your desired residency.
