Please indicate the residency session you are applying for:
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.
Your supporters must email their letters directly to as "YOUR NAME" REFERENCE. List their names, titles/affiliations, and contact information below. Letters must be received by noon CST on Monday, July 8, 2019 application deadline.
