Emergence Residency Program

Emergence is an artist residency program that offers artists & companies free rehearsal and performance space to develop and produce new work.

This winter residency program will give 10 artists/companies across all disciplines space to develop new work between January and April. Artists will have an opportunity to connect with a mentor in their chosen medium, and a platform to showcase their work in progress on Culture Lab's website and social media. Work created at Culture Lab will be showcased at Culture Lab's outdoor stage, or indoor theatre in the spring.

We accept proposals from all genres (theatre, music, dance, performance art, puppetry, etc.), as long as the work is performed live. You can apply as an individual, or a group.

Applications open: November 20, 2021
