The On the Boards Artists-in-Residence program gives Northwest-based artists, selected by Artistic Director Rachel Cook, time, access, and support for rehearsal and technical experimentation by specifically investing in their individual artistic process and progress.
The Artists-in-Residence program can include works-in-progress and open rehearsals as select opportunities for the wider community to look at the creative process. By also providing professional expertise around production, support in fundraising, and curatorial guidance for projects in development, On the Boards invests in every aspect of the artists’ professional development.
This program has been designed to put the needs of the artist at the center of the work. By encouraging these artists to use On the Boards as a home base they will each explore themes of comprehensive collectivity and belonging.
