Funded Interactive Art + Dance Summer Residency

  • Deadline:
    Feb. 3, 2017, 11:59 p.m.
  • Location:
    Spokane, Washington, USA

We're currently accepting applications for our summer session (June-August 2017) which will be focused on the intersection of interactive art and dance. If you'd love to come out and spend 1-3 months here from June 1st through the end of August working with dancers on exploring frontiers in movement and interaction, we're currently accepting applications, and we'd love to get yours.

Application details are here:

Our focus this summer is on the intersection of dance and interactive art. This could mean a lot of things - maybe you want to build an installation that dancers perform in. Or you want to develp wearable electronics that explore augmenting body movement. Or maybe you're a dancer wanting to create a dance project that involves an audience as active participants. Basically, we're looking for interactive projects that incorporate bodily movement as a core element, with or without technology.

Importantly, we want this to be a collaborative process – we’ve connected with several dance resources here in Spokane, including the Vytal Movement Dance Company and Gonzaga University’s Theater and Dance department, and we want to bring you together with them to work on making a truly collaborational work, where creative input flows both ways. So, while you should definitely have some ideas for what you’re wanting to do, you should also be excited about the work evolve and change shape during your time here.

Laboratory’s mission is to provide practicing interactive artists with the time, space, and freedom to make awesome stuff. So we want to offer you space to live, space to work, tools, mentorship, and connections to make that happen. Plus, a $200 a month stipend if you have the right to work in the USA, so that's cool.
