|Introducing Pay It Forward!|
Calling all performers, musicians, dancers, and artists of all kinds!
CitySpace’s Pay It Forward pilot program invites artists who live in Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin counties to create, incubate, rehearse, and perform in CitySpace’s Blue Room, a performance and community space located in Old Town Hall.
CitySpace is offering artists the opportunity for short-term residencies and a venue for public performances and events. In addition, artists will receive a $500 payment for a public performance or event. Further, Pay It Forward fellows will have access to artist-tailored workshops, peer-learning cohorts, or one-on-one coaching to deepen their practice, build new skills and relationships, and explore new ideas.
