Call for Applications: 2021-2022 Local Artist in Residence Program

Hosted by Public Energy Performing Arts

Public Energy’s Artist Residency Program offers performing artists the opportunity to develop the technical aspects of their work: lighting, scenography, stage management, sound and projection in our home venue, the Market Hall Performing Arts Centre. These residencies give artists the valuable experience of financially supported time within a well equipped facility, helping them to develop and professionalize the technical aspects of their work. Residencies often culminate with a performance, either the premiere of a new work or re-mount of an existing one, giving smaller to mid-range companies and artists the chance to advance their creative work on a specific project. While in residence, artists also take part in our In Your Space Community Workshop Series which provides community groups and organizations in Peterborough access to the performing arts via hands-on learning experiences.

Applications are due by May 17, 2021 by 5pm EST.
