OPPORTUNITIES AT FUTURE TENANT

Future Tenant is always looking for talented creatives of all disciplines to feature in our space.

Future Tenant believes strongly in paying all artists for their work. Compensation varies depending on the type of event, exhibition, or opportunity - for additional details, please check the information provided in the forms below, or inquire with Future Tenant staff.


Trespass Residencies offer emerging performing & visual artists complete access to Future Tenant as they develop and present an original work. The residencies are two weeks in duration, and culminate in one final presentation or performance (depending on the kind of work produced). Included in the Trespass Residency is a $250 production budget allowing artists to more fully realize their projects. 

Trespass Residencies are open to all kinds of artists, performance, visual or otherwise. We select proposals that are most intruiging, experimental, and that help Future Tenant fulfill its mission. Past Trespass Residencies have included innovative dance productions, site-specific visual artworks and technology-based interactive art. Proposals that invite audience participation are also popular selections.

Applications are reviewed upon submission and are accepted on a rolling basis. We currently have 2 residency slots open:

1) March 20th - April 2nd, 2019

2) August 21st - September 3rd, 2019
