Texas A&M University: New Work Development Artist Residency Programme 2024

The School of Performance, Visualisation and Fine Arts at Texas A&M University has announced its inaugural New Work Development Artist Residency programme, from 1 September to 30 November 2024. The school is committed to inspiring campus and community by incubating new works of art in an environment of creative reciprocity between scholars and artists that crosses, blurs and erases disciplinary lines.

The school was founded by three intrinsically interdisciplinary units: Dance Science (combining dance and the biological and health sciences), Visualisation (uniting the fine and visual arts with computer science) and Performance Studies (a conjunction of music and theatre drawing on anthropology and related humanities fields).

The New Work Development Artist Residency is designed to take advantage of these existing areas of strength, and the school’s emerging areas of new research (including music performance, music technology, devised theatre, graphic design, photo and video, painting and illustration, sculpture, choreography, virtual production, games, animation, visual computing and materials-based research). Artists in residence are invited to take advantage of the varieties of expertise and resources available in the school as they develop a new work or body of works.

While this is a development residency, artists in residence will be expected to integrate their work into the life of the school, providing opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to take part in their creative process and engaging with faculty and the wider campus community throughout the residency period. This programme is designed to be mutually beneficial to the artist in residence and the students, providing the latter a high-impact educational opportunity to be present at and contribute to the creative work of the former. At the end of the programme, the artist in residence will publicly present what they have accomplished during the residency.

The school will provide the selected artist in residence with a 10,000 USD stipend (for living expenses and project materials), on-campus lodging, shared office space and access to school facilities, undergraduate and/or graduate student assistance, and visa support for international artists.
