The Black Artists Space to Create (BASC) Residency offers three artists a residency at Modern Accord Depot in Accord, NY. The 2023-24 recipients are Mickey Davidson, Jordan Deal, and Aya Shabu. Each artist will receive a one-week residency with unlimited access to a dance studio, full living space, and a $2,000 stipend. The residency is designed as both retreat and a space to create without the pressure of developing a new project. Additionally, artists have access to complimentary studio space at New Dance Alliance’s loft in Tribeca throughout the season, and are invited to show work at NDA’s annual Performance Mix Festival. Artists were selected by the 2023-24 BASC Curatorial Committee: Davalois Fearon, Ayan Felix, Djassi daCosta Johnson, Miriam Parker, and Majesty Royale-Jackson. Learn more about the BASC program and artists →
