Questions about the program |

The Residency exists to break down barriers to equitable arts learning. We continue to center on Black, Indigenous, & P.O.C identifying young artists from low-income families to help acquire tangible artistic and professional skills while gaining confidence, teamwork, and a deepened understanding of their identity and power.
