Community Project:

Each year, our First Generation Resident Companies will work collaboratively to solve a mutual and community challenge.

What’s this year’s Challenge?  Resident Companies just moved in and are getting settled. In early 2018 they will begin brainstorming project options. 

2016/2017 Project: An exploration of Trailers for theatre projects -  translating live performance to digital form effectively, do's and don'ts and making different trailers for different purposes.  

ACTION: Help them complete their research by participating in their survey - no experience required!

2015/2016 Project: A 5 part video series that explores the challenges and best practices of site specific work using their own productions as case studies.

ACTION: Click here to watch the video playlist.

How to Apply:  Submission information for next year's resident companies will be announced in the Spring.
