Renewal Residency: mayfield brooks
Danspace is pleased to continue Renewal Residencies in 2022-2023 with a new cohort of artists: mayfield brooks, Andros Zins-Browne, Yo-Yo Lin, and Ogemdi Ude.
Each artist will receive two weeks of residency time in the sanctuary at St. Mark’s Church, a generous artist fee, and stipends for research in racial equity and accessibility. The artists will have access to curatorial support and technical assistance throughout the year, as well as opportunities to connect with one another, contribute to Danspace’s online Journal, and participate in a DraftWork work-in-progress showing.
Renewal Residencies emphasize recuperation time to create work without the immediate pressure of production, encouraging connection to: creative process and artistic research; collaborators and fellow artists; and to the Danspace Project community.
Renewal Residencies are not open to the public.
