2020 Residency Application

Complete applications are reviewed and ranked by a panel of distinguished Escape To Create alums representing each discipline. Their recommendations are made on the strength of three one-page proposals: Project, Performance, and Educational Outreach. A selection committee awards residencies based on recommendations of the Alum Panel. Notifications are emailed to all applicants in August.

Please indicate the residency session you are applying for:
The Goody Fellowship
The Holland Scholarship
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. (Please type or paste text in space below)
The Project Proposal describes the work you will be undertaking, what you hope to accomplish, and any specific outcome(s) you expect. (Please type or paste text in space below)
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. (Please type or paste text in space below)
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. (Please type or paste text in space below)
Resume or cv should substantiate your professional and creative work. (Please type or paste text in space below)
