As one of the only organizations in the world of this scale with a practicing artist as Artistic Director, National Sawdust has long prided itself on its robust Artist-in-Residence program, which has helped over 40 artists or groups who have gone on to develop their craft across the world. With the success of the program, we have found it necessary to expand the Artist-in-Residence program to include Projects-in-Residence.
The National Sawdust Projects-In-Residence program formally begins with the 2018-19 season and will help artists and groups actualize a concept or further explore a burgeoning piece currently in development. By focusing on one concept, Projects-in-Residence contrasts with the Artist-in-Residence program, which focuses on developing an artist’s career, which can include multiple showcase concerts of different ideas.
Artists pursuing Projects-in-Residence will be given similar resources to our Artists-in-Residence.
