Since 2005, the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) has established a vibrant residency program that has hosted over 150 artists and their collaborators, spanning theater, dance, music, video, and installation. We are pleased to announce the new deadlines for 2012 artist-in-residence open call program on January 17, May 14, and September 17, and new application guidelines and application form.

We encourage applications for a wide range of projects from a diversity of artists, composers, directors, choreographers, and performers from international artists of different cultural and geographical backgrounds.
We are open to proposals for all phases of a project, from initial concept to full production.
In addition to our ongoing residency open call, we also have additional special initiatives:
Creative Research: Provides artists, writers, and theorists with the opportunity to conduct research over extended periods of time (minimum six weeks).
Audio Production / Post-Production: For sound recording, development of multichannel sound works, documentation, mastering, mixing, film scoring, or any other task involving microphones, speakers, consoles and computers.
Video Production / Post-Production: For multiple camera shoots, documentation of a performance, development of multichannel video projection, digital video post-production, or any project involving HD video cameras, computers, and projectors.
** Please note that residency proposals do not need to fall into one of these special initiatives.
Our unique facilities offer four major venues including a concert hall, theater, and two black box studios, in addition to artist-in-residence studios, and a state of the art infrastructure.
