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 5 - July 31 2021 9:00am-2:00pm, Tuesday through Friday.
Two all-day access to the Windmill Black Box, August 6 & 7. This can be a tech day and 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 Friday, April 23rd, 2021.
Once selected, the Artist-In-Residence will meet with the Fly on a Wall Team to develop the goals and terms of the residency.
