Artist in residence program
The period for accepting applications for artist residencies for Feb-May 2018 is now closed. Residences are 5-7 days long and include weekday studio hours before 5pm (and limited evening hours), one low-tech work-in-progress studio showing, with the requirement of teaching one community class in our Moving Target Sunday class series. Housing arrangements are ideal for one or two but available for up to three people (if your group is bigger, email before sending your application). The artist will receive 50% of class and performance income and a $100 travel stipend for those traveling from out of state. Meals not included.
Our facility is a 2,000 square foot open studio located on the ocean just 2 miles from downtown Portland, Maine, a thriving yet quaint city in New England.
We are looking for dance/movement artists who are pushing the boundaries of performance practices. We appreciate interdisciplinary work, work that fosters new interactions with audience members, and work that expands ideas of what dance can be/do. We value somatics, improvisation, experimentation, social justice, and community. Special consideration will be made for artists of color, woman-identified or femme-identified artists, LGBTQ artists, and Maine residents, but people from all backgrounds and locations are encouraged to apply. Learn more about our mission here.
DEADLINE to apply was: Jan 1, 2018 - STAY TUNED FOR SUMMER!
Up to 4 projects will be selected for our spring 2018 program.
