The Emerging Artist Residency is a 3-month paid residency at Destiny Arts Center that cultivates the artist growth of LGBTQQI2-S (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, intersex, two-spirit) identified performing artists ages 18-24. Led by mentor teaching artists, Indira Allegra and India Davis, residents work through a collaborative process to create solo and group performances that include storytelling, spoken word, movement, and theater. The residency culminates in a community showcase on April 22nd and 23rd.
The Queer Emerging Artist Residency is specifically designed for LGBTQQIA2-S identified artists of color and their white allies who are interested in utilizing art and performance as tools for social change.
