Emerging Artists Program 2013
About the Emerging Artists Program
TLC is sponsoring its 4th annual Emerging Artists Program which enables both individual creative artists and a collaborative team of artists to take time and attention to focus on their current work. This program subsidizes 2 week-long residencies for 7 emerging artists from the Minnesota and the 5 boroughs of New York, and 1 week-long residency for a performing arts project that would have exclusive use of the facilities. Please note that applicants must live in either MN or one of the 5 NYC boroughs to be eligible to apply.
The residencies at TLC are intentionally interdisciplinary in nature. Artists from several disciplines can apply: playwriting, poetry, prose writing, painting, music composition, and dance. We would be happy to accept applicants who sculpt, produce films, are photographers, work with crafts; we are, however, more limited in terms of the materials we can provide. The underlying philosophy is to provide space and means of support for individual artists wishing to further their creative endeavors in the visual, literary or performing arts. The dramaturgical assistance of TLC director Liz Engelman is available if desired.
Group Project Week: July 29 - August 4
Individual Artist Weeks: September 9 - 15, and 16 - 22
How To Apply
