The Distillery Artist Residency supports New Orleans mid-career artists by providing free development space, interdisciplinary collaboration, documentation, mentorship, and working stipend in a comprehensive three-month fellowship program at the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans, culminating with a presented showing free to the public. The Distillery fosters an audience-driven critical dialogue that promotes a sustainable approach to making performance-based art in a constantly varying environment and provides resources to artists in the creation of new work.

* Over 144 hours of studio time at the CAC, between June-August, 2015
