Company in Residence

 Community. Collaboration. The Artists.

A Company-In-Residence is a program that is designed for an arts organization in the community and its host institution to establish a positive relationship, flourish simultaneously, and enrich one another.

This program by Neptune Theatre and Prismatic Arts Festival has been mindfully created for both organizations to work together, as equals, to create space for collaboration, the production and presentation of work, and the connection and engagement of the broader community.

Both organizations look to work together long-term to build and establish a cultural hub in the heart of Kjipuktuk/Halifax. This includes working together on our ever-evolving visions of how we can best serve the needs of artists and audiences across all communities. This partnership means that ALL are welcome in the space - free of oppression and barriers - to learn, experience, work, create and build a sustainable arts practice and thriving cultural community.

This will happen through the mindful sharing of resources, including an in-kind professional administrative home for Prismatic, ideas, networks, practices, and audiences, which in turn will heighten the scope of both organizations' activities.
