Kick-off 2012 by attending the Dance Forum, a free pre-conference event at APAP, exploring residencies in dance.
Residency programs provide artists with a unique opportunity to develop and perform their work in a supportive environment. Yet, while programs in the U.S. provide residencies to more than 10,000 artists annually, fewer than 10% of the participants are dance makers.
Attend the 2012 Dance Forum, presented by Dance/USA and APAP, to learn more about the state of residencies in dance.
- Hear research highlights from Mind the Gap: Artist Residencies and Dance, a recent study conducted by the Alliance of Artist Communities.
- Explore the state of residencies in dance.
- Understand the various approaches to dance residencies.
- Hear from working artists on their experiences with dance residency programs.
