The Residency is designed exclusively for rising teen artists from the greater Seattle area who meet King County low-income verification standards. Aiming to directly address the access barriers many underserved youth and families face when asked to choose between paying for an experiential learning opportunity beyond their means and getting a summer job this residency is an opportunity to provide up to 45 teen artists with a high-quality arts experience that supports them pursuing their artistic development and be compensated for their talent. Additional opportunities and programming exist beyond the summer intensive for each cohort.
The Residency will be accepting new applications for the 2019 cohort until May 31, 2019. Applications are now open HERE.
