Culture Lab LIC's Emergence Artist Residency is a developmental performing arts program geared toward the support and creation of new work. Always wanted to find the space and time to write your tech-hybrid dance show? Well, this is the residency for you! The Emergence Artist Residency program offers four artists & companies free rehearsal and performance space to develop and produce a new work.
Work created at Culture Lab LIC will be showcased on one of Culture Lab's stages and presented and promoted as a part of the Culture Lab LIC 2023 Season. Artists retain creative rights to the work created.
Between February and December 2023, this residency program will give artists/companies across all disciplines space to develop a new work. From February-June artists are encouraged to experiment, write, sing, dance and develop their project. A part of this process will be monthly check-ins with their fellow Emergence peers and with Culture Lab LIC's Artistic Director, Tess Howsam. July-November artists work with the Culture Lab LIC team to plan an open to the public workshop production.
We accept proposals from all genres (theater, music, dance, performance art, puppetry, etc.), as long as the work is performed live.
This residency is not open to previous participants.
Due to the amount of submissions we receive we are unable to contact each artist. Thank you for your patience and interest in Culture Lab LIC.
