The Canadian College of Performing Arts Alumni Residency, provided by the Canadian Heritage Arts Society, aims to provide alumni of the College with creation and development opportunities for works in progress while providing unique performing arts engagement opportunities with the Greater Victoria community.
The goal is to offer support at integral stages of development for original works or re-imaginings of existing work. These works may focus on specific performing arts disciplines or be multidisciplinary in nature. The artistic aim is to support the chosen artistic project at its current stage and support it to the next level of development. Applicants are asked to provide clear and concise plans of what they plan to achieve during this phase of development.
The College will provide support for each applicant for two projects: 1) artistic and 2) community engagement. For each project, the College will provide in-kind resources such as space for creation, rehearsals and showings, as well as in-house dramaturgical support, marketing support (with expenses up to $250), and a cash investment up to $10,000. Community engagement may take the form of educational workshops, complimentary public performances, readings, or other form of proposed community outreach. The College is looking for unique opportunities that are conscious of the location the projects are set in.
