Created 20 years ago to address a compelling need in the field—the void of artistic, administrative, and financial support for artists with certain professional accomplishments, but without breakthrough recognition—the HERE Artist Residency Program (HARP) assists artists who are developing distinct artistic voices and experimenting with new approaches that expand the parameters of performance work.
As one of the most robust residency programs of this nature in the country and serving as a national model, HARP provides a commission, developmental support, career planning, and a full production to cross-genre artists, within a collaborative environment of peers working across disparate art forms – including theatre, dance, music, puppetry, visual art, and new media. HARP provides significant long-term support, as well as $50,000 in cash and $50,000 in space, equipment, and services over 2-3 years to tailor each residency to each artist’s individual needs. Through significant investment of time and resources, dynamic work within a strong community is created.
Application deadline of February 1st, 2019. More can be found: http://here.org/programs/harp/.
