Residency Programs / Apply for the E|MERGE Interdisciplinary Collaborative Residency!
« Last post by admin on September 20, 2017, 04:01:22 PM »
The E|MERGE Interdisciplinary Collaborative Residency is a two-week long creative residency at Earthdance, Massachusetts. Twenty curated participants from many different disciplines come together to explore new modes of creation and collective decision-making processes.

Through structures that allow for risk-taking and alternate methods for creation, (horizontal organization, collective decision-making, cross-disciplinary collaboration, nonlinear process), E|MERGE provides a fertile space for pushing the boundaries of collaboration and leadership, undoing assumptions about creative processes, and exploring how creative practices transform our relationship to power and politics.

Participants share access to Earthdance's beautiful dance studios, alternate on-site locations for installations and performances, as well as engage with the extended hilltown creative community and over 125 acres of (snow-covered) meadow and forest. Participants stay in communal-style housing and work together to prepare meals and care for the space.

The residency culminates in a final weekend of performances, panel discussions, writing, research, and other modes of expression called E|MERGE Presents, February 23-24.
The fee for the residency is $600 which covers vegetarian meals and dorm-style housing. Scholarships and Work-Study are available.​

Application deadline: November 1, 2017
