Professional Artist Residencies
A fundamental part of The Center’s mission is to work in partnership with local schools to inspire students’ curiosity and develop their skills in improvisation,, self-expression and critical thinking. Residency programs are offered 2–5 times annually and impact thousands of students every year. Through classroom residencies and performances with renowned musicians, performers and authors, The Center makes it a priority to bring world-class artists and scholars to even the youngest members of our community.
Artist Residencies are a vital part of our K–12 outreach. By offering opportunities for students to engage with film, world music and contemporary dance, we provide access to a variety of artistic forms.
