Artists aim to interpret the world, and draw on personal experiences to develop work that creates an impact. To realize that goal, they need space, support, and guidance. As an artist-led institution, this was the genesis for the National Sawdust Artists-in-Residence program.
National Sawdust’s Artist-in-Residence program offers structured opportunities for artists to develop new work based on pertinent social or political themes, experiment with new sounds leveraging state-of-the-art technology — including the Meyer Sound Constellation® Acoustic System and Spacemap® Multi-Channel Panning System — and learn about the art of making art from industry leaders and the most renowned musicians in the field today.
Through peer interaction, discussion groups, formal lectures, mentorship, and performances of their work for the National Sawdust season, participants deeply explore the creative process and gain insights that can be applied to the professional development of their work.
