The Artists in Residence program is an initiative by W&M Dance Projects designed to support independent artists in their work. Successful applicants receive a highly discounted studio rate for the duration of their projects, opportunities for informal showings of work, outside eye support by established guest artists, access to 4 hours annually of professional counseling on grant submission and project/production development, professional development through a series of workshops/lectures, and assistance in creating video reels and promotional videos to market their work.
Applicants are accepted at all phases of project development and career stages. Senior Artists in Residence contribute to the program through mentorship, feedback and/or classes and workshops.
Launched as The Calgary Rehearsal Cooperative in 2008, it has been re-evaluated, reshaped and expanded to respond to the current needs of our growing dance community.
