We are interested in artists who work to bend and break the rules of conventional performance. Our community is full of artists, thinkers, comedians, renegades, storytellers, innovators, and creators. And while Houston is home to many thriving arts organizations, expensive rental fees often stand in the way of artists being able to book space.
Rec Room Arts supports the development of new work by inviting artists to propose, create, and present works of theatre, dance, music, opera, performance art, film and more - free of charge.
Artists of all mediums are encouraged to apply to the Residency program. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Accepted candidates will receive at least one, and up to 12 performances or exhibitions for one year. Artists will also be provided daytime rehearsal space, technical support, artistic feedback, marketing/PR, and box office/front of house management. Artists will receive a stipend in the amount of 50% of the box office sales for all performances.
Please note, the residency program is open to individual artists or groups of artists who are not part of an established company or professional organization.
