Active Programs Other Activities


Since 2009, this annual residency has given composers suitable creative space in a NYC cultural facility. Applications for the 2016-17 Composers’ Residency are now closed. Residents will be announced in late June.


This interdisciplinary residency brings choreographers and composers together at the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning. This is EtM’s first implementation stemming from our Queens Workspace Initiative. A report on this research was released in June 2014. Applications for the 2016-17 EtM Choreographer + Composer Residencies are now available. The deadline is Wednesday June 1, 2016.
