Since 2009, this annual residency program has given composers suitable creative space in a NYC cultural facility. The deadline has passed for the 2017-18 EtM Con Edison Composer Residencies.  Resident composers will be announced in the summer.

Two residency programs have emerged from our 2014 Queens Workspace Initiative. The first, in Jamaica, Queens, is for choreographer-composer teams. The second, being piloted in the Ridgewood Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn/Queens, is for composers only.

The deadline has passed for the 2017-18 EtM Choreographer + Composer Residencies in partnership with the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning. Resident artists will be announced later in the summer.
