Schedule of Events

The Program: You will be working in a safe space for experimentation, so we encourage you take these months to make bold choices, to try things you’ve never tried before, to cross disciplinary boundaries, to take leaps—and if you fall flat on your face, get up and try again. The program is not necessarily about “success” (especially not “commercial” success), but about your creative process and growth as an artist activist ("artivist"?). Keep that in mind always. This is about you developing your voice, about exploring ways to strive for social change (however you define that) through your performance work.
