The Co-MISSION Residency will be awarded to three (3) performance artists to engage in the development & research of new or existing work, from mid-September to mid-December 2021. Links Hall provides artists with a 12-week studio residency (valued at $2,400), a $400 monthly stipend ($1,200 total award), support of the Art of Rehearsal Workshop series (with coaches/mentors Kim Davis, Kristina Isabelle, & Bryan Saner), works-in-progress opportunities, and shared-bill performances at Links Hall’s Co-MISSION Festival of New Works.


The Co-MISSION Fellowship will be awarded to two (2) performance artists to undergo an intense rehearsal process from January to May 2022. These selected artists will be veteran performance makers already past the initial research phase of the development of their new works. These individuals will be awarded: five months of studio time to complete the creation of their new projects (valued at $4,800), a $600 monthly stipend ($3,000 total award), personalized mentoring with Art of Rehearsal coaches, a works-in-progress showing, and evening-length presentations of their new work as part of the Co-MISSION Festival of New Works.


Needs-based transportation stipends are available for artists requesting support in traveling to Links Hall’s space at 3111 N Western Ave in Roscoe Village, Chicago. If you need additional accommodations to complete the application, please contact us at or (773) 373-9046. We will be happy to work with you.


This initiative is supported by Links Co-MISSIONing Collective, which is made up of a group of generous individuals who annually commit to supporting the direct-dollars-to-artists programs at Links Hall. Via curatorial budgets, residency stipends, artist fees, and touring subsidies, The Collective encourages artists at all stages in their careers to take the artistic risks necessary for their continued growth.
