Dancers At Work Forum @ The Chicago Cultural Center

Erica Mott in residency in Iceland

(NOTE FROM PETER: I am particularly excited about this program as it features three women I know well and respect immensely: Caitlin Strokosch, Julia Rhoads, and Erica Mott; and it is held at my old stomping grounds – the Chicago Cultural Center!)

Monday, July 18, 6–8 p.m. at the Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington – Be Our Guest: Finding Creative Time + Space for Artist Residencies, presented in partnership with the Alliance of Artist Communities

Think there aren’t many residency programs for dance? Think again! There are more than 160 residency programs in the U.S. and Canada open to dancemakers and dozens more around the world. Whether you’re a solo choreographer looking for a quiet place to conduct research or a dance company polishing the production of new work, there’s a residency program for you.

Find out what distinguishes these programs, the best way to apply, and how to maximize your experience. Ask questions, meet the directors, and pick up literature from artists’ residencies in your region and beyond.
