Artist Residencies


The CAC's Artist Residencies are an application-based program offering time, space, resources, and professional development opportunities for both visual and performing artists in New Orleans.

Performing artists and companies are selected for intensive two-week residencies in the CAC's Black Box Theater with support from CAC technical and curatorial staff. The performing residents are provided the opportunity to perform work-in-process showings, while visual artists present works created during their residency as part of the CAC's annual SOLOS exhibition — all open to the public.
