RESIDENCY

ARTIST RESIDENCY PROGRAM

REC ROOM ARTS' ARTIST RESIDENCY PROVIDES ESTABLISHED ARTISTS, AS WELL AS YOUNG, FRINGE, AND EMERGING ARTISTS OF ALL DISCIPLINES, A PLACE TO DEVELOP AND PERFORM NEW WORK.  

OVERVIEW

Delivering on our promise to nurture and support innovative artists both locally and beyond, Rec Room Arts is happy to announce another installment of our Artist Residency program. This Artist Residency is an opportunity for theatre makers to develop new work at a professional theatre.  Whether a new musical, a play or puppet show, we want to give you the time, space and support needed to develop and refine a new theatrical piece. This residency is built around the artist needs, but is best for projects that are at a place where actors and audiences will be of service to the projects development. 

The application deadline for the 2019 Artist Residency has passed. Please check back on this site at the start of the new Calendar year for the 2020 Artist Residency application.


OVERVIEW OF REC ROOM WRITERS

Rec Room Writers is a writers group created for Houston playwrights to have the space, support and community to develop and workshop their plays.  Meeting bi-weekly for 8 to 9 months, the playwrights will come together at Rec Room, reading and offering critical and supportive response to each other's work. In June, the workshop will culminate in a collection of staged readings for the public. 

Application requirements: 

    • An artistic resume/CV

    • A short statement explaining why you are interested in joining Rec Room Writers  

    • Briefly explain your current writing practices

    • Provide a sample of your work (a short play or selection from a longer play)

    • Provide a proposal for another play that you would like to start writing this year. 

Please send this all to info@recroomhtx.com


Rec Room's Artist Residency Program is funded in part by the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance
