The residency programme at AMATA enables performing arts practitioners to access studio space for non-curricular activity, generally outside of University term times. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but we advise applying at least six months in advance. Because there are actual and opportunity costs to AMATA associated with this offer, we need to ensure that all residencies benefit our students in some way.
With this in mind, Artists-in-Residence are expected to contribute to AMATA through, for example; a gratis performance for the performance programme in lieu of the value of the studio time (this may be at a later date, where we would contribute towards expenses but no fee will be payable) and/or a gratis sharing of work-in-progress, or participation in workshops or teaching sessions.
