The Love-In is proud to introduce the new program, Artist Feature.
2021 will see a new way of structuring our year, where artists will have the opportunity to stretch out their time spent with the organization and with the community. We are also changing the language we use to describe our programs. Historically, we used the word “workshop” to describe the majority of our programming throughout the year. These workshops would occur over the course of a condensed week, which allowed a focused window of time for the participants to dive into the artist’s work/practice. Going forward, we are using the word offering or session to allow for more choice and interpretation from the artist around what they share. Our intention is to bring a focus on exchange and growth versus quick transmission. Artist Feature directly supports all facets that make up the work of the artist and also allows for a deepening of our relationship together.
Our aim with this program is to support an artist over the course of several months in their chosen area of research. They will present a series of offerings to be shared with our community on a bi-weekly or weekly basis. This is a model of hosting artists that is unique to the Love-In. We are revolutionizing what it means to be contracted for work as a dance artist. Not only are we expanding the contract to include multiple opportunities of engagement within a year, we are also giving them a chance to influence how, what and when they share their work. This is a model where the artist comes before the agenda of the organization.
