Summer Intensives add flexible studio residencies to Links Hall’s commissioning program and create lower pressure opportunities for artists to experiment with new practices. These “ala carte” residencies are 1-4 weeks long based on the resident’s needs. They offer a great opportunity for emerging artists to try their hand at a studio residency for the first time, and give established artists’ room to experiment with new material or collaborate with out of town partners.
Though this program will continue to focus primarily on supporting local artists; some preference will be given to Chicago artists interested in dedicating the time to working with long distance collaborators, and a few slots may be offered to out of town artists interested in developing relationships with the Chicago performance community.

Applications for 2019 will be live October 1 2018, due December 15 2018

The Program offers:

  • A 1-4 week residency based on their needs, up to 20 hours of studio time a week. (more hours per week will be allocated to artists with shorter Residencies)
  • A $100 per week stipend to help cover transportation or unexpected expenses.
  • A works in progress Performance at Links Hall in Studio A as a part of Links Hall’s Fall WIP Monday Night Series.
  • A Links Hall LD PSM for their works in progress performance.
