Thank you to everyone who applied to

A Call for Submissions goes out once a year in the spring for these annual programs. If you'd like to know as soon as the next call goes out, be sure to join our mailing list and follow us on social media.

Generator welcomes artists, collectives, non-profits and charities working across the performing arts to submit. We invite submissions from artistically and culturally diverse performing arts individuals and companies who want to participate and collaborate with Generator.


Deadline:  Thursday, May 4, 2017 @ 12pm

If you are an independent producer, self-producing artist or an artist who wants to learn how to make art happen more efficiently, Generator’s one-year paid Artist Producer Training program is for you.

Over three semesters of coursework led by prominent seasoned independent artists and companies, followed by one practicum project with a mentor company, participants will learn effective producing strategies. 

Graduates will create and implement projects and budgets that have the goal of paying a better wage to artists, gain skills to sustain a career in the arts, and improve the overall health of the performing arts ecology.
