E|MERGE 2013 Open Call. Interdisciplinary artist residency . USA

E|MERGE encourages cross-disciplinary collaboration toward forging new creative relationships, that bridge known and unknown territories.

This residency is ideal for those interested in collaborating and cross-pollinating ideas with artists from other disciplines and backgrounds. Many of the collaborations begun during this residency have continued to develop into rich & ongoing artistic relationships. E|MERGE is a residency that has grown into an organically developing network of highly skilled artists.

Past residency projects have included: a Museum of Narrow Spaces taking place in multiple locations throughout the Earthdance grounds & physical landscape; a performance installation performed for one audience member at a time, centered around a remote cabin; a photo shoot and participatory installation in our lodge kitchen; a video installation in a library loft; an experiment in creating an improvisational group animal without the use of language; a multi-media piece on self & isolation; and so much more.

What Earthdance can offer you

  • Working/ Performance spaces including:
    - 2 beautiful, large dance studios with sprung maple floors and radiant heating.

    - A church for site-specific work (through collaboration with a local congregation).

What Earthdance expects of E|MERGE artists-in-residence

  • Workshops/Labs
    Some residency artists will be invited to lead workshops or labs within the residency as well as locally with the public. Our hope is that artists will take advantage of this time for creative research, engaging one another and the public directly with your current exploration and curiosity.
  • Participation fee
    $300 for the 14-day residency, to assist with food & housing expenses. We encourage artists to solicit private sponsors, and will happily offer a letter or other supplemental materials to support your fundraising efforts. NOTE: Some work/trade exchange options available
  • Public presentation
    We will organize an opportunity for you to share your work at some stage of development with local community.
  • Community Engagement
    All participants assist in some cleaning and cooking chores during the residency.
  • Fundraising Support
    Earthdance will be developing an online campaign to help subsidize this residency. Participating artists are asked to encourage your followers to contribute. 

Past residency projects have included:

A Museum of Narrow Spaces took place in multiple locations throughout the Earthdance grounds & physical landscape; On Solitude, a performance installation performed for one audience member at a time, centered around a remote cabin; Any Resemblance, a scripted, site-specific performance in a kitchen exploring social media, domestic lesbian partnership, and race; Tornado, two performance pieces originating from the same visual arts source materials; Neighbours, an interview-based community project involving a local church as site and source. We have had vocal collaborations, experiments in non-verbal collaboration, video installations, photo and film shoots, and so much more.

Here's what some E|MERGE resident artists have to say

Thank you [E|MERGE] for reminding me what it means to create from a place of joy and laughter rather than stress and frustration.  
— Gillian Chadsey, actor/performer (New York)
The two weeks were very inspiring. Fascinating encounters happened within the projects and workshops, but also around them in various informal exchanges - and I do not mean only with each individual, but also in relation to the kind of collective that arised from our gathering at earthdance.
— Akseli Aittomäki, dancer (Finland)
This residency is a wonderful dream, just keep it going...     
—Pamela Casper, sculptor (New York)
