Each stage of the residency will be supported by mentorship from the companies’ Artistic Directors: Katrina Douglas, Karen Therese and Nick Atkins and each project will be given $3000 cash for the purpose of artist frees and project costs.

Selected artists will be asked to present a work in progress showing at PACT.
