Cornish Playhouse Arts Incubator

Applications are now open for the 2019 Arts Incubator class

What Is It?

The Cornish Playhouse Arts Incubator residency aims to facilitate the risk taking of the allied arts. The goal for this program is to support artists in the creation of work that is outside the boundaries of their genre, discipline, or comfort zone. The intention of Arts Incubator is not to create a final, polished product. Instead, the program seeks to give artists time and space to incubate and begin to develop an idea, concept, or exploration. Four groups will be selected to participate in a two week residency. They will receive free rental space at the Alhadeff Studio Theater to incubate new and exciting ideas. The program is part of Cornish Playhouse’s public benefit to the Seattle community.

Who Can Apply?

The Cornish Playhouse Arts Incubator Residency is open to anyone age 18 and older, including professional and non-professional artists, teachers, ensembles and groups, and students. The Residency is open to both those within the Cornish community and those outside the Cornish community. Projects submitted should be in their early stages and involve a minimum of two artists from two different art forms. Artists from all disciplines are urged to apply. The artists applying must be Washington state residents.

How to Apply

The application process is now open. Groups are selected to participate in the Arts Incubator Residency by completing the application and submitting by 5pm November 19, 2018. Groups are notified in December if they have been successful. Any questions on the application process should be directed to pestell@cornish.edu
