To bring a meaningful cultural dialogue between artists and audiences by supporting a performing art series and a residency opportunity that includes lectures and master classes at the estate.
To foster a cultural dialogue between artists and audiences, the Deering Estate Foundation will support a performing art series and a residency opportunity that includes lectures and master classes at the estate. Building on its already successful visual, literary and performance art program, the expanded residencies will include a playwright development program, retreats and a resident theater company. Interdisciplinary workshops, lectures and master classes will be offered in exchange for residency opportunities.
The mission of the Deering Estate Foundation is to raise public awareness, outreach, understanding and the appreciation of the Deering Estate at Cutler and to raise funds to support education, research, exhibits and collections, natural conservation and historical restoration and preservation.
