Fosters' Spring Residency

web site

Deadline: February 28, 2021 9PM EST


Fosters is thrilled to announce our inaugural FREE Spring Residency! This virtual week will provide space for exploration of new theatrical work that is yearning for a deeper dive into development and artists that are yearning to find their creative voice within new work.

The Spring Residency will support one playwright and their existing theatrical work, one director, and up to six actors.

Each participant will be mailed a “Creative Context” box filled with tools to give dramaturgical grounding to the specific playwrights work as well as other unique items geared for the care of each individual artist. As with every Fosters event, daily meditation will also be provided.
Fosters Spring Residency strives to:
  • Create a space where artistic process is given priority over any product.
  • Remove judgement and focus on communication.
  • Empower every artist participating to contribute from their own unique artistic POV. 
  • Care for the artists by providing an empowering, uplifting, safe space to create.
  • Provide Playwrights space to explore every avenue their theatrical piece can go down
  • Provide Directors creative space to explore new work and new ways of working
  • Provide Actors space to reconnect with their artistic voice and unique POV
How to Apply:

All applicants must be over the age of 18 and have flexible availability the week of April 18th-24th.

All applicants must fill out the Google form by Feb 28th, 2021 9pm EST. The selection committee, comprised of four Fosters Board Members will review all the applicants and make selections who will move onto Zoom interview March 3rd -12th
