HERE Arts Center Seeking Submissions

HERE Arts Center is seeking submissions for their HERE Artists Residency Program (HARP) and SubletSeries@HERE Program!

HERE Artist Residency Program (HARP) 

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 Artists 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/.

SubletSeries@HERE Program 

One of their most vital services, the SubletSeries@HERE Program, supports 250 guest independent artists and groups—such as New Georges, Vampire Cowboys, and ViBe Theater Experience (an educational arts group for underserved urban teen girls)—and their audiences each season.

This creative curated rental program has allowed many upstart companies and emerging artists to realize their full artistic vision on a small budget. The program provides subsidized performance and rehearsal space, technical assistance, and administrative support, including a fully staffed box office. SubletSeries@HERE artists can also access equipment that is not typically available in venues our size such as video projectors, wireless microphones, color scrollers—all for free or at subsidized rates. We accept applications from artists all over the world for the opportunity to show work.

For more information, and to fill out an online application, please visit the SubletSeries@HERE website at: http://here.org/programs/subletseries/
