Creative Greensboro, the City’s office of arts and culture, is accepting new proposals from individuals and organizations interested in a performing arts residency at the Stephen D. Hyers Theatre at the Greensboro Cultural Center. The priority application window is open until March 7, for the available residency dates of June 20 to September 25.
The Residency at the Hyers program provides rent-free residencies of one to six weeks for dance, theatre, music, film, and poetry projects being led by Guilford County based creative individuals and organizations. In addition to access to the 88 seat black box theatre for rehearsals and performances, resident artists will be offered support with materials, equipment, technical theatre staff, and marketing of residency activities.
Resident artists will be asked to cover direct staffing costs required by their residency and to share back to Creative Greensboro ten percent of any revenue collected onsite through residency activities. 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 who are disabled.
