Artist in Residency Program

Artist and audiences discussing

Creative support: UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance provides select artists with creative time, space and resources to explore new ideas and develop new work through artistic residencies on the UCLA campus.

Creative development: Invited to participate by CAP UCLA’s creative leadership team and supported by the Residency Fund, CAP UCLA artists-in-residence enjoy a period of concentrated creative development. During this time, they may receive early phase project development support through direct funding, commissions, access to rehearsal space and production resources.

Logistical support: CAP UCLA provides logistical support through its departmental staff and facilitates dialogue with UCLA faculty and researchers in other university departments. It also offers access to UCLA Special Collections archives and research libraries.

UCLA community workshops and presentations: CAP UCLA creates opportunities for UCLA students, faculty and community members to experience workshops and other work in progress presentations by artists-in-residence to provide feedback and build an understanding of the creative process behind creating new works of art.
