Compensation/Grant Amount



Creative Greensboro, the City’s office for arts and culture, is accepting new proposals from individuals and organizations to be in residency at the Stephen D. Hyers Theatre at the Greensboro Cultural Center. The priority application window is open until 5 pm on December 15. Learn more and apply online.

The Residency at the Hyers program provides a rent-free, four-week residency for dance, theater, music, and poetry projects led by Guilford County-based creative individuals and organizations. In addition to access to the 88-seat black box theater for rehearsals and performances, resident artists will be offered support with materials, equipment, technical theater staff, marketing of residency activities, and a $1,200 stipend. Creative Greensboro is especially interested in providing space for performing arts programs that are different from what is already being offered at the Greensboro Cultural Center and are focused on engaging communities of color, low-income residents, or people with disabilities. Previous residencies include a children’s drama production, dance presentations, music workshops, and concerts.

Resident artists will be asked to cover the cost of any staffing required and provided by Creative Greensboro. This may include house management support, staff to operate sound and lighting equipment, or security for any usage outside of regular building hours.
