GallimXCreateART Fall 2019 Residency Program
Gallim's Artist Residency Space Grant Program in support of CreateART
The GallimXCreateART Artist Residency is a week-long program dedicated solely to the creative process. Two emerging choreographers, selected by the CreateART team, are invited to set up temporary artistic roots in Gallim’s beautiful Brooklyn studio. The residency culminates in a presentation of their work-in-progress at a CreateART performance event hosted at the Gallim Studio.
A vital component of Gallim’s mission is to serve the next generation of artists and nurture their creativity. Gallim seeks to provide pathways for young and emerging artists across multiple disciplines to unearth their individual voices. Their landmark Brooklyn studio provides a home for extensive physical research and artistic development in our local community and beyond.
The residency program was developed in direct response to the need for space in the New York Metropolitan area that the art making process requires, and in line with support of CreateART’s mission to nurture emerging artists and community. To date, Gallim has provided over 50 hours of free rehearsal space to 4 CreateART resident artists.

“The GallimXCreateART Artist Residency Program has provided me with the two most coveted resources in New York: time and space. These integral ingredients allow for mistakes to be made as well as agency for the orginal idea of a piece to wrap, grow, and find its truest form. The work I create and am interested in continuing calls for immense research into human emotion and the humor of everyday angst. It is necessary to play and experiment; it is necessary to have the resources that feed the rehearsal process with an understanding that, even if what is tested during rehearsal does not make the final cut, the final product was impacted by the play. This incredible program gives me liberty to question and occasion to grow, and for this I am grateful.”
-Hannah Garner, Artistic Director of 2nd Best Dance Company and 2018 GallimXCreateART Resident Artist
