The Nest Artist Residency seeks to deepen the artistic relationship between local new generation artists and the broader artistic community. The goal of this residency is rooted in process, with a focus on risk taking, mistake-making, embracing failure as a step toward greatness, and exploring new ways of artistic expression that starts by asking ‘What do you need?’.
The Nest is an opportunity for directors, dramaturgs, playwrights, poets, dancers, musicians, divisors, and artist creators of all kinds looking for the space and mentorship to cultivate ideas into works that are provocative, innovative, and ambitious.
Residency in the Nest involves a public presentation at In the Soil Arts Festival 2024 that showcases the work-in-progress that residents create over an 8-month period. We encourage individuals, duos and collectives to apply to the residency. If you have an idea, we want to hear from you! The Nest Artist Residency will be offered with a hybrid of in-person and digital commitments in adherence with all public health guidelines.
The Nest Artist Residency period: November 8, 2023 – June 30, 2024
