Since its inception, Fly on a Wall’s vision has been rooted in the desire to support innovative creators and their ideas. This vision led to the development of the Fly on a Wall Artist Residency, a one-month residency culminating in a performance/showing in the black box at The Windmill Arts Center.
Fly on a Wall is seeking applications from Atlanta artists working in any performance medium who do not have regular access to creative time and space. All bodies are encouraged to apply regardless of age, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, color, ability, citizen status, national origin, or religion.
The residency includes:
Access to the Windmill White Box, July 19 - August 12, 2022 9:00am-2:00pm, Tuesday through Friday.
All-day access to the Windmill Black Box on August 13, 2022. This can be a performance day, or a filming, or a work-in-progress, etc.
Access to all technical and artistic capabilities of the Windmill Arts Center and Fly on a Wall, except for expendables (e.g. Tape, Special Flooring, etc.).
Two required community engagement opportunities to be led by the Artist-In-Residence.
If the Artist-In-Residence chooses to have a ticketed performance, all proceeds will go to the Artist.
All applications will be reviewed by a diverse group of panelists, and the top three candidates will be interviewed by the Fly on a Wall Team. Application deadline is Sunday, March 20th, 2022.
Once selected, the Artist-In-Residence will meet with the Fly on a Wall Team to develop the goals and terms of the residency.
