Performing Arts Residency Program

The Performing Arts Residency Program provides a platform for the development and performance of new work that simultaneously enriches the airport environment and cultivates the regional performing arts community. This opportunity is a process-oriented residency program open to contemporary performing arts in all disciplines—dance, music, theater, as well as cross-disciplinary digital media.
