The Dresher Ensemble Artist Residency (D.E.A.R.) was established in 2012 to support Northern California artists who are actively exploring new aesthetic premises and pushing the boundaries of conventional art forms and media. The program provides early to mid-career artists free studio space and up-to-date equipment to create new work in the time-based arts such as theater/performance, dance/movement, music/sound art/instrument invention, as well as collaborative and interdisciplinary work.

On rare occasions, the program may consider applications from established or older artists whose work does not receive significant institutional support. If your work falls into this category, before taking the time to prepare and submit an application, you must contact us at info @ dresherensemble [dot] org at least two weeks before the final submission deadline and provide your bio and a description of your proposed project for your residency. (Do not apply without a confirmation to go forward.)

D.E.A.R. grants 4 to 6 awards annually to individual artists or to groups of artists collaborating on a single project. The lead artist must be a resident of Northern California and must not be a student at the time of the application and residency.
