The Preamp Program – currently in its pilot phase – aims to provide a short-term residency for early to mid-career artists to develop work in its earliest stages over the course of a 7 day short-term residency at Arts Commons. This call is open to ALL forms of artistic practice, however preference will be given to works that are – or lean towards the – performative, collaborate across artistic disciplines, and challenge those involved. This program aims to provide: space, technology, and artist fees towards exploring the process of how a new work is developed; the focus is on process over product. Each residency will culminate in a public sharing.

Submissions are currently open. More information can be found on the call for submissions page.

Expect to see more as we receive feedback from the pilot phase, and learn more from the groups and individuals we partner with. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns can be directed to:
