Applications Open: 2022 Artist Residencies


The CAC is thrilled to announce the call for submissions for our 2022 Artist in Residency Cohort! The CAC's Artist Residencies are an application-based program offering time, space, resources, and professional development opportunities for performing and visual artists in New Orleans. The deadline to apply is February 18, 2022.

Performing artists and companies are selected for intensive four week residencies in the CAC's Black Box Theater with support from CAC technical and curatorial staff, culminating in public work-in-process performances at the end of their session. Visual artists or collectives are offered the opportunity to present new works as part of the CAC's annual SOLOS exhibition. The performances and SOLOS exhibition will be open to the public.

This year, two performing artists/companies and two visual artists/collectives will be selected for participation. Visual Artists will work with our Curator to build shows off-site for installation in the CAC's second floor gallery. Each of the selected artists/companies will be paid a $1,000 artist stipend.

Submission deadline: Submissions will be accepted until February 18, 2022 at 11:59 pm. Once submissions have been closed, CAC staff will reach out to second round applicants with a request for a Zoom interview, to be conducted the week of March 14, 2022.
