Artists in Residence Program for Emerging Artists

Via Miami Light Project


To support emerging artists by creating an artist-in-residence program as part of the annual Here & Now Festival, which commissions and presents local works.

Artists will be offered year-round, dedicated rehearsal space at The Light Box and professional development support including workshops on financial, legal and marketing topics. Presenters, managers and agents from across the country will be invited to Miami to attend the performances and speak one-on-one with each of the commissioned artists.

Founded in 1989, the nonprofit Miami Light Project presents live performances by innovative dance, music and theater artists from around the world, supports the development of new work by South Florida-based artists, and offers educational programs for students of every age. Since inception, it has reached a diverse cross-section of communities throughout Miami-Dade County with an extensive outreach effort that includes partnerships with other arts organizations, universities and social service agencies. Miami Light Project is a cultural forum to explore some of the issues that define contemporary society.
