Requirements

This opportunity is open to artists working in the performing arts, including but not limited to dance/movement, spoken word, theater, music, and immersive experiences. Artists must live in New York City. The residency will be for 12 months from March 2022 to March 2023.

There will be four spots open for 2022/23 Performance Project Artists-in-Residence. One application per artist or company/collective, please.

We are seeking artists who create work that addresses themes resonant with New Yorkers who live in public housing, who are recent immigrants, and who too often do not see their stories and perspectives reflected on the stages of our city. Before submitting an application, we highly encourage you to learn more about University Settlement, the communities it engages with, and the programs it offers. You can visit us online at universitysettlement.org.
