Residency: National Playwright Residency Program Call for Applications

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, in collaboration with HowlRound Theatre Commons at Emerson College, established the National Playwright Residency Program (NPRP) in 2013.  The program provides three years of salary, benefits, and a flexible research and development fund for a diverse group of American playwrights at selected theaters around the country.  More than a standard residency, we conceived this initiative as an intervention into the traditional relationships between artists and institutions, as a way of reimagining what institutions might look like when an artist’s voice is at their cores.  NPRP has four primary goals:

  • Advance the state of playwrights in the American theater by providing them with space, time, and resources, and greater access to the institutions in which they work;

  • Influence the working environment of theaters by embedding playwrights in them;

  • Generate public value through the interaction of playwrights with local artistic and civic communities;

  • Document and disseminate the findings to help benefit the field.

Residencies will be selected through an open application process.  Theaters and playwrights must apply jointly by submitting statements of intent from the playwright and artistic director; a scope of work; and other specified materials to demonstrate eligibility, potential to achieve the goals of the program, and desire to participate in a growing network to advance artist-centered practices in the theater field.

Call for Entry: The Art of the Shack at the Coachella Valley Art Center (California)

Shacks
For International artists

“There’s no place like home.” So said Dorothy Gale, famously, in The Wizard of Oz. Nothing could be truer.

No matter the address, from mansion to humble dwelling - urban to rural, it’s more about individuality, determination and soul. In The Art of the Shack, we explore and celebrate the concept of home inspired by the work of American artist Beverly Buchanan (1940-2015) who was influenced by the sharecropper shacks she experienced in the Deep South and the do-it-yourself builders and architects around the globe.

Developed by the S.C.R.A.P. Gallery and the Coachella Valley Art Center, the exhibit is calling for small-scale sculptures using recycled and reused materials. Size limited to no larger than 12" x 12"
