New Edge Artists Service Program and Performance Series

Community Education Center

$40,000

The Community Education Center (CEC) produced the 25th season of the New Edge Artists Service Program and Performance Series, a program that serves performing artists at different stages of career development. The series offers two categories of support: the New Edge Mix and the New Edge Residency. The New Edge Mix is a showcase for artists at an early stage of their development and/or who previously had few opportunities to perform, while the residency is designed for artists with substantial performance experience, who are still considered as "emerging" artists. Selected artists receive rehearsal space, a stipend, and production services for three evenings of concerts of their own work in the CEC's Meeting House Theater, as well as a professional photo shoot and video documentation of their concert. New Edge awardees are also eligible to take part in the CEC/New Dance Alliance Exchange, a collaborative performance venture with New Dance Alliance in New York City.
