The Watermill Center-ArteEast Fall 2012 / Spring 2013 Residency ProgramJune 1, 2012
ArteEast is proud to announce that applications are being accepted for the second Watermill-ArteEast Residency.
In 2011, ArteEast partnered with the Watermill Center to launch a program to support one residency per year dedicated to artists based in the Middle East and North Africa. The 2011 recipient of this prestigious residency was Abbas Akhavan.
The Watermill-ArteEast 2013 resident will be included in the Spring 2013 residency program (January - June 2013) at the Watermill Center, a place for young and emerging artists to work, learn, create, and grow with each other, by integrating performing arts practice with resources from the humanities, research from the sciences, and inspiration from the visual arts. Watermill residencies offer artists a unique opportunity within the global landscape of experimental theatrical performance, by convening the brightest minds from all disciplines to do "what no one else is doing."
The recipient of The Watermill-ArteEast 2013 residency will receive funding for travel and accommodation at the Watermill Center and will be expected to give an artist talk about the work done in residence.
