ARTIST in RESIDENCE

The Artists in Residence program is an initiative by W&M DANCE PROJECTS designed to support independent artists in their work. Successful applicants receive financial support for their projects, outside eye support by established guest artists, access to 2-4 hours annually of professional counseling on grant submission and project/production development, professional development through guest workshops/lectures, and assistance in creating video reels and promotional videos to market their work at a reduced rate.  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.
