The Watermill Center has forged partnerships with leading institutions to help reach new networks and further the workshop projects. This current application cycle features partnerships with ArteEast, CPR – Center for Performance Research, Lincoln Center Directors Lab, and others to ensure the quality of the work as well as provide vital continuing support of artist projects.

Since The Watermill Center Residency Program started in 2006, the Center will have hosted over 100 residency groups. The 2014 Residency Program will accept projects during the months of January – June and September – December. It gives young artists the opportunity to live and work at The Watermill Center as a home to create and develop new work. Each residency varies in length according to artists’ and project needs and generally lasts a concentrated period of two to six weeks. A distinguished international Selection Committee composed of artists, academics, and cultural leaders across all disciplines meet in July to select the artists groups that will be invited to the residency program each year.
In addition to creating and developing their work, artists share their creative process at Watermill with the public through open rehearsals, workshops, and/or artist talks. Through partnership initiatives, some residencies go on to develop and showcase their work with other NYC institutions.
