Rhizome Performance Residency Program

Our Rhizome residencies aim to generate collaborative partnerships that support artists and their original practice. This program generates unique opportunities to undertake activities that explore the Rhizome or root system of humanity. Resident artists can choose to interpret this in a variety of ways including an exploration of heritage, place in the world or links to community.
