Ensemble Playwrights Lab 2022-2023

Website

Deadline: September 2, 2022

The Ensemble Playwright Lab (EPL) is a residency program for NYC-based playwrights to engage with Letter of Marque's (LOM) ensemble of actors, musicians, dancers, designers, and dramaturgs to create, develop, or reimagine a piece of work. This experimental process of creation and development is designed to welcome the playwright into the rehearsal room through active participation in devised and improvisational explorations. The goals and outcomes of each residency are mutually determined by both LOM and the playwright.

Playwrights are chosen using an anonymous submission process. Each entrant is asked to create an alias so as to mask their identity. Entrants are also required to omit all mentions of names of previous collaborators and the titles of their previous work. The anonymized submissions are then read by a panel consisting LOM Co-Artistic Directors Nolan Kennedy and Scarlet Maressa Rivera, and Guest Dramaturgs. Finalists are scheduled for interviews to determine the participants in this year’s Ensemble Playwright Lab. 

This season, LOM will be exploring the theme of DISCOVERY.

For the third season, LOM will proudly offer a $500 honorarium to each playwright chosen for a residency.

There will be two residencies: Fall (Oct.-Nov.) and Spring (March-May). Each residency will consist of 7 consecutive sessions to develop a work with the LOM ensemble. At the end of each residency, there will be a public showing and a facilitated post-showing talkback with the audience, playwright, and cast.

All meetings, rehearsals, and showings will take place in person in Manhattan, NYC unless otherwise arranged.

LOM is striving to amplify more BIPoC and LGBTQA+ voices. Playwrights from these communities are encouraged to apply.

NOTE: This is an annonymous submission process.
Do not mention your real name, the names of companies or artists you've worked with, or titles of plays you've written in your submission. Doing so will get you disqualified!

If you have any questions, please email: lomsubmissions@gmail.com to contact a non-adjudicating member of the team.

Eligibilty

The EPL is open to playwrights...

-who currently live in NYC
who are able to attend all required sessions
-at any stage of their career
-wishing to work on a previously written piece OR wanting to create something new with the LOM ensemble
-age 21 or older

If you have submitted to the EPL in the past, please feel free to submit again!

What we are looking for:

The purpose of the Ensemble Playwright Lab is to build a relationship between a playwright and the LOM ensemble, and to explore/allow for/create new ways of collaboration. This program is intended for artists who identify as playwrights and want to improve their craft as well as their work. Yes, there will be public presentations at the end of the residency. However, what gets presented will be based on the interest and goals of the playwright. Letter of Marque’s mission is to spread ensemble culture, through responsive, inclusive, and accessible theater, and to engage individuals in collective success and meaningful dialogue.

What Does It Cost the Playwright:
There is no monetary charge or fee to participate in the Ensemble Playwrights Lab. We ask for their time, dedication, talent, and energy!

Land Rights: open call for projects 2022-2023

Website

Deadline: none given

Athens Greece

Submission form

Who has rights to the land? Does the land have rights? Who has access to natural resources and the “commons” and who grants it? How has modernity shaped our relation to nature and how has this relationship in turn shaped our culture, our social relationships and our daily lives?

In our present moment of late capitalism, we are witnessing a clash between local communities and transnational capital, over our most fundamental relationship to life, civilization and social structuring: the land, and the human right to it. From the Balkans to the Pacific, local communities are fighting - most times with their very bodies- to defend their land, the natural resources and their ways of living. In this struggle they are standing against a complex network of interests involving state, corporate, legal and media powers, which - and that’s not an overstatement - are taking control over the planet and its resources. Despite the victories for these local movements, some of which have gone as far as succeeding to grant legal rights for nature, we are faced, more than ever before, with massive land grabs (and subsequent massive exclusions from resources) and an unprecedented environmental catastrophe.

With the present call, we invite artists of all fields (dance, performance, visual arts, video, theatre, playwriting etc) , culture professionals, architects and urban designers, documentarists, activists and researchers, to submit their work on themes related to the rights to the land/rights of the land. Interested applicants may submit for a presentation or a residency, a finished project or an in-progress work.

Themes may include but are not limited to:

-Public space and the commons
-Urban space, architecture, imaginary spaces/ cities
-Indigenous communities, histories, cultures and struggles to defend the land
-Food politics
-Colonial and neocolonial land politics and histories
-Decolonization: reclaiming the land and resources, redefining the relationship between humans and the environment.
-Climate catastrophe
-Climate refugees

The works that will be selected through the open call, will be presented at 1927 art space as part of an interdisciplinary programming that will include performances, staged readings, art exhibitions, artistic residencies, talks and debates, and will take place over the fall of 2022 and winter of 2023 in Athens. Information and questions: 1927artspace@gmail.com | www.1927online.art.blog
 
Only selected artists will be contacted

Conditions of participation: For international artists/researchers/resident artists, depending on the project and its needs, 1927 art space will offer hospitality for up to 3 persons. 

When an event is ticketed, artists/participants will receive half of the box office income. 

For visual arts, artists have the option to have their work available for sale. 

1927 art space will work with artists in order to raise support from different institutions in Greece and around the world.

The Anderson Center’s goal is for connections participating artists make with one another, as well as connections made with other creatives and community members, to outlast the duration of their residency visit.

Website

Deadline: January 15, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. CST

SUBMISSION VIA SUBMITTABLE

TO APPLY
The application deadline for the 2022 Anderson Center Deaf Artists Residency Program is Saturday, January 15, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. CST. Applications must be submitted on or before the deadline in order to be considered in the jury review period. There is no fee for applying to this residency program.

Jury review will take place in late January and early February. Selected artist residents, wait-list and runners-up will be notified by March 2, 2022 at the latest.

Thanks to support from the National Endowment for the Arts, artists selected to participate in the cohort will receive a $1,100 stipend for the month, reimbursement of up to $500 in travel costs, art-making resources, lodging & studio space, groceries, and chef-prepared communal dinners.


ELIGIBILITY
The Anderson Center’s Deaf Artists Residency (DAR) is an ASL-centric environment where Deaf artists can communicate and exchange ideas. The program provides 5 Deaf artists the opportunity to come together to live, work and share ideas with other native ASL signers, while advancing their own personal artistic projects.

Because the program is generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, only Deaf artists based in the United States of America are eligible to participate.

To be considered, artists must submit an application through the Anderson Center’s online form via Submittable. Complete program details are below. For application questions, please contact Adam Wiltgen via email at adam@andersoncenter.org.


DURATION OF RESIDENCY
For the 2022 season, the Anderson Center is only offering month-long residencies in June. Two-week residencies are not an option for the Deaf Artists Residency.


LOCATION
The Anderson Center campus is located on the 350-acre historic Tower View Estate, built by scientist & farmer Dr. Alexander Pierce Anderson between 1915 and 1921, on the western edge of Red Wing, Minnesota, and its buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Center features a large sculpture garden, and is adjacent to the Cannon Valley Trail, a 20-mile biking and walking trail that runs from Cannon Falls to Red Wing.

The Center is approximately 45 minutes southeast of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Transportation is provided between the Center and the Twin Cities airport on the first and last day of residencies only. Artist Residents that choose to drive will have access to private parking on the property.

The community of Red Wing, Minn., (pop. 16,000) is nestled amidst the scenic bluffs of the upper Mississippi River. The town is settled on the ancestral homelands of the Mdewakanton & Wapakute bands of the Dakota people. The City of Red Wing is named after Tatanka Mani (Walking Buffalo), a leader of the Mdewakanton Dakota in the upper Mississippi Valley who wore a ceremonial swan’s wing dyed in brilliant red. In 1815, Tatanka Mani and his people moved their village south to a place they called Khemnichan (Hill, Wood, & Water) in present-day downtown Red Wing. Euro-American immigrants who met him as they advanced into the region in the early nineteenth century came to know him and his village as “Red Wing.”

Since its settlement and eventual incorporation in 1857, Red Wing established itself as a center for agriculture, industry, tourism, medical care, technology, and the arts. The Red Wing Shoe Company and its iconic brands, in particular, continue to have a significant impact on the community’s economic, business, and community development climates. Natural resources abound with Red Wing's riverfront, winding paths through the majestic bluffs, bike trails, and 35 city parks. The Prairie Island Indian Community is located northwest of the city. Frontenac State Park is to the southeast on Lake Pepin. Minnesota State College Southeast Technical’s Red Wing campus is known for its string and brass instrument repair programs. The MN Dept. of Corrections also operates a large juvenile residential facility in Red Wing.

Other amenities include a destination bakery, a chocolate shop, coffee shops, restaurants, the flagship Red Wing Shoe Company store, Goodhue County Historical Society Museum, the Red Wing Stoneware & Pottery store, the Pottery Museum of Red Wing, a Duluth Trading store, the Red Wing Marine Museum, a Target, several pharmacies, a plant nursery & garden center, a Mayo Health System Hospital, a small independent bookstore, and a public library (the Center has arranged for residents to have access to a library card for their month at the Center).

Other key community stakeholders include the historic Sheldon Theatre, the Red Wing Arts Association, Red Wing YMCA, Red Wing Youth Outreach, Hispanic Outreach of Goodhue County, Red Wing Area Friends of Immigrants, Red Wing Area Women’s Art History Club, Live Healthy Red Wing, Artreach, Red Wing Artisan Collective, the Artist Sanctuary, Pier 55 Red Wing Area Seniors, Big Turn Music Festival, Red Wing AAUW, Red Wing Environmental Learning Center, Red Wing Girl Scouts, Red Wing Public Schools, Tower View Alternative School, and Universal Music Center, as well as several City boards, commissions, and departments.

Responses
“The opportunity to be an artist-in-residence on Governor’s Island was a great and nurturing experience for me this past summer during the Epidemic. The natural setting, on an island surrounded by water, standing barefoot amidst the great old trees in Nolan Park inspired me to create a dance/storytelling work drawing from ancient Jewish mysticism.” — Yehuda Hyman/Dancer Choreographer

“Governors Island is an oasis away from the city, an incredible sanctuary to dance and focus on the work without distractions or anxiety from the ongoing pandemic. Highly recommended for rejuvenation and inspiration!” — Katharine Pettit Creative — KPC

Ensemble Playwright Lab (EPL) is a residency program for NYC-based playwrights

web site

Deadline: August 23rd, 2021

The Ensemble Playwright Lab (EPL) is a residency program for NYC-based playwrights to engage with Letter of Marque's (LOM) ensemble of actors, musicians, dancers, designers, and dramaturgs to create, develop, or reimagine a piece of work. This experimental process of creation and development is designed to welcome the playwright into the rehearsal room through active participation in devised and improvisational explorations. The goals and outcomes of each residency are mutually determined by both LOM and the playwright.

Playwrights are chosen using an anonymous submission process. Each entrant is asked to create an alias so as to mask their identity. Entrants are also required to omit all mentions of names of previous collaborators and the titles of their previous work. The anonymized submissions are then read by a panel consisting of Lynde Rosario (Literary Manager of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts), Lea Marie Heller (Resident LOM Dramaturg), LOM Co-Artistic Directors Nolan Kennedy and Scarlet Maressa Rivera, and Guest Dramaturg, Myjoycia Cezar. Finalists are scheduled for interviews to determine the participants in this year’s Ensemble Playwright Lab.
This season, LOM will be exploring the theme of ADAPTING.

For the second season, LOM will proudly offer a $500 honorarium to each playwright chosen for a residency.

There will be two residencies: Fall (Oct.-Nov.) and Winter (Feb-March). Each residency will consist of 7 consecutive sessions to develop a work with the LOM ensemble. At the end of each residency, there will be a public showing and a facilitated post-showing talkback with the audience, playwright, and cast.

All meetings, rehearsals, and showings will take place in person in Brooklyn, NYC unless otherwise arranged.

LOM is striving to amplify more BIPoC and LGBTQA+ voices. Playwrights from these communities are encouraged to apply.

NOTE: This is an annonymous submission process.
Do not mention your real name, the names of companies or artists you've worked with, or titles of plays you've written in your submission. Doing so will get you disqualified!

If you have any questions, please email: lomsubmissions@gmail.com to contact a non-adjudicating member of the team.

-who currently live in NYC
who are able to attend all required sessions

If you have submitted to the EPL in the past, please feel free to submit again!


What we are looking for:

This program is intended for artists who identify as playwrights and want to improve their craft as well as their work. Yes, there will be public presentations at the end of the residency. However, what gets presented will be based on the interest and goals of the playwright.

2022 Object Movement Puppetry Residency Program

web site

Deadline: August 1, 2021 11:59 PM EDT

Object Movement is a CWP Residency Program for the development of new works by puppeteers and object theater artists. Curated by Maiko Kikuchi, Rowan Magee, and Justin Perkins, Object Movement supports the development of new work that addresses eternal human questions and the urgent challenges of our society today through puppetry and object theater, culminating in an annual festival of short performances.

We are delighted to be returning to the theater for the 2021-2022 Object Movement Residency & Festival! Residency meetings will be held on Tuesday evenings with a hybrid of in-person and virtual sessions, and the festival will be entirely in-person with live audiences if COVID safety conditions permit.

The Spring 2022 Object Movement Puppetry Festival is made possible in part by a grant from the Jim Henson Foundation and generous donations from people like you. Thank you for your support!

ABOUT THE RESIDENCY

For eleven weeks in Fall 2021 and eleven weeks in Spring 2022, a cohort of eight puppetry and object theater artists (or pairs or teams of artists) will meet to share progress on developing new work. Meetings will be on Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:30pm and will be a mix of in-person and virtual sessions. In-person meetings will be held at the Center at West Park and virtual meetings will be held on Zoom. Meetings will be facilitated by the curatorial team, which includes Maiko Kikuchi, Rowan Magee, and Justin Perkins. The goal of these meetings is to provide supportive feedback for the artists and a useful but flexible structure for making and sharing work.

Each resident artist will develop a single piece over the course of the residency. There will be a work-in-progress showing for invited audiences at the second-to-last fall meeting on December 7. Completed pieces will be presented in a festival in the Center at West Park’s Sanctuary Theater March 28 through April 9, 2022. 

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Spring 2022 Object Movement Puppetry Festival will take place over two weeks from March 28 through April 9, 2022 in the Center at West Park’s Sanctuary Theater. Each week will feature a different program of four original short pieces 10 to 15 minutes long. Each week will include a dedicated tech day for each of the four pieces, a dress rehearsal, and three performances.

The festival will provide a stage manager and technical director, a rep lighting plot, basic sound system, and marketing and box office services. Each lead artist or team will be paid 1/16 of the net box office proceeds or $100 (whichever is greater) at the end of the festival.

2022 Lanesboro Artist Residency Program

web site

Deadline: July 30, 2021 at 12 p.m. (noon) CST 

The Lanesboro Artist Residency Program offers two or four week residencies to emerging artists driven to explore ways in which their work can be applied to the community and how Lanesboro’s rural community can inform their work. The Lanesboro Artist Residency Program, located in Lanesboro, MN (pop. 754), is supported by the Jerome Foundation and aims to provide an immersive, meaningful experience for emerging artists from Minnesota and the five boroughs of New York City. The program is unique in that it provides an entire rural community and its myriad assets as a catalytic vehicle for engagement and artistic experimentation, with staff working with each resident to create a fully-customized residency experience.

Lanesboro Arts’ goal is to be flexible and accommodating to artists, allowing them access to local resources needed for conceptualizing and realizing their place-based work. Lanesboro Arts recognizes “place-based work” as work that is specifically inspired by and designed for the place in which the work takes place; it can be a new project, or an interpretation of the artist’s current work tailored to engage the community of Lanesboro. The residency program was designed to align with and amplify Lanesboro Arts’ vision for communities–especially rural communities–to embrace artists as economic drivers, culture bearers, community builders, and problem solvers. Follow these links for reflective audio interviews with 2018 artists in residence: Erin Lavelle and Rini Yun Keagy.

TO APPLY

The application deadline for the 2022 Lanesboro Artist Residency Program is Friday, July 30, 2021 at 12 p.m. (noon) CST. The application is now open, and can be found here.

Jury review will take place in August and applicants will be notified by September 17, 2021 at the latest as to the status of their application. A phone interview process with finalists will take place in late September and selected artist residents and runners-up will be notified by October 4, 2021.

Artists must be legal residents of Minnesota or one of the five boroughs of New York City to be eligible to apply. To be considered, eligible artists must submit their application through the online webform on Lanesboro Arts website. Complete program details are below. Please contact Kara Maloney at 507-467-2446 or kara@lanesboroarts.org with any questions.
