Bechdel Project's Room of One's Own (ROO) Residency


Deadline: March 15, 2024

Bechdel Project, a Greenpoint non-profit dedicated to elevating feminist voices in theater and film, is thrilled to announce the opening of its Room of One's Own (ROO) Residency for 2024. 

This one-year residency empowers feminist writers of all intersections to develop bold, innovative work for the stage or screen that amplifies untold stories of women. Inspired by Virginia Woolf's seminal work, "A Room of One's Own," the ROO provides a space and comprehensive support for a chosen writer to delve into their artistic vision.

The 2024/25 residency offers:

Financial Support: $5,000 in artist funds to fuel the creative process.

A 3 Week Residency Option from September 1st - 22nd at Bechdel Project HQ (Includes housing & unlimited studio time)

An Artistic Home: Access to the Bechdel Project's vibrant spaces in Brooklyn and Germany for writing, workshops, and readings.

Curated Mentorship: Tailored guidance from the Bechdel Project team, including dramaturgy, producing, and logistical support.

Community Connection: Opportunities to engage with a network of feminist artists and creators.

Public Platform: A culminating public reading of the developed work at Bechdel Project.

We are particularly seeking applications from global-majority writers whose work:

Centers on women (living or historical), highlighting untold, underrepresented, narratives and perspectives.

Challenges existing power structures and gender norms.

Embraces diverse viewpoints and intersections of identity within feminism.

Pushes the boundaries of form and genre in theatrical and screen storytelling.

Applications March 15th. For more information about the ROO Residency and the application process, please visit our website at https://www.bechdelproject.org/home/development/roo.

Join us in celebrating Women's History Month by amplifying the voices of tomorrow's feminist storytellers!
