About the Parent Artist Residency program 

This residency program aims to address the need for flexible and supportive creative arts services for New York City-based parent artists in the field of dance and movement-based art forms. The high cost of childcare in NYC, combined with studio rental costs, are often a barrier preventing parent artists from having time in the studio to produce creative work. Movement Research aims to help address this challenge through the Parent Artist Residency Program.
