Emergence Residency Program

It’s no secret that 2020 has been a kick in the teeth to many artists, especially live performers. We began thinking “What would really make a difference to performing artists this winter?"

We keep hearing that the biggest artistic challenge being faced by performing artists currently is the vast unknown of when it will be safe and financially viable to make new work or stage a performance.


So, we ran with that…

Culture Lab LIC brings you Emergence

Emergence is an artist residency program that offers artists & companies free, socially distant space where they can develop and produce new work.

This winter residency program gives a select number of artists across all disciplines space to develop new work between January and April. Work created at Culture Lab will be showcased at a festival in the spring.

If you love what we're doing at Culture Lab, and would like to support an artist, company or project within the Emergence Residence Program, please consider donating below.
