The Cover Letter introduces you to the jurors and informs them about what you are seeking through a residency experience. It can include statements on why you have selected Escape to Create; mention of any prior residency experience; a brief artist’s statement, etc.
The Project Proposal describes the work you will be undertaking, what you hope to accomplish, and any specific outcome(s) you expect.
As a contribution to the community, artists are required to give a presentation of their creative work. See Escape to Create facebook page for examples. Venues are equipped to show video/film screenings and PowerPoint presentations. Any admission charge or suggested donations defray production costs and underwrite residency expense.
We recognize artists are not necessarily teachers; however, the need is so great in our under-served county schools that we require this important contribution. Educational Outreach can be satisfied with a single classroom visit to a student body presentation (average 50 minutes); a visit to an after-school program (up to 2 hours); readings/performance at local library, etc. Recent examples appear on Escape to Create facebook page and on our website.
Resume or cv should substantiate your professional and creative work.
