Artist Residency

New this season, the GRCAP Artist Residency program has been created so that event organizers can apply to be selected as part of the Community Arts Program’s presented programming, designed to support individuals and groups showing exceptional artistic and social merit exemplifying our mission-based criteria. 

Each residency represents a unique collaboration and exchange of community space for community programming content.  

Selected individuals and groups will receive up to 40 hours of free creative time across our multiple performance, office, and rehearsal spaces, with the understanding that this time is used to develop content that will inspire, heal, immerse, and encourage our community members. The Community Arts Staff will co-produce the resulting events and works under the banner of Goddard Riverside and provide additional services & support.  

INSPIRE – boundary-push, play, innovate, explore, excel 

HEAL restore, regenerate, support, center, protect 

IMMERSE expose, contextualize, teach, share, enlighten 

ENCOURAGE – ground, build, belong, strengthen, empower
