The 2018 Colleen Porter Artist Development Residency application for IPAY
Showcase in Philadelphia, PA, January 24-27, 2018 is now available and
due November 17, 2017.

The Colleen Porter Artist Development Residency is an opportunity for an
early career artist dedicated to creating work for young audiences to
develop their work in an environment that allows them to see their ideas
and progress in a national and international context. IPAY is proud to
continue to support development of Emerging Artists in the field of
performing arts for young audiences with a facilitated residency
opportunity in honor of the life and work of our treasured colleague,
Colleen Porter.

This juried award supports the artistic development of the selected artists
through participation in our annual Kindling focus at IPAY Showcase. The
experience is a year-long residency between IPAY Showcase 2018 and Showcase
2019. The selected artist will work with veteran international arts
professional, Tony Reekie (Scotland) who will assist in facilitating the
Showcase experience with the Porter resident and intersecting with the
artists and presenters each day, to discuss how the experience may be
relevant to their own practice, to share ideas, to facilitate development
and to help establish connections.

IPAY will support the cost of Showcase registration and provide any
necessary accommodation for Showcase 2018 and Showcase 2019. Interested
artists, who have been in the field for at least 3 years; can demonstrate a
need for financial assistance; are able to attend the full IPAY Showcase
Conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, January 23-27, 2018 should
submit their proposal by November 17, 2017. Download full guidelines here,
