LiftOff Artists are invited to participate in in-person and Zoom Work Sessions. Sharing creative process, project development, and community exchange on the last Monday of every month from 6pm-9pm.

Interested artists must comply with studio regulations:

The studio is available Monday-Friday 10 am-6 pm. Since the studio is located within a private loft, NDA aims to book only 4 hours of rehearsal per day. While space may be available on the studio calendar, if an artist(s) has already booked 4 hours, no more rehearsal can be booked on that day. Please find more details about the studio here

The LiftOff Residency is FREE. If you are able, please consider making a donation to support the continuation and development of our programs.

Past LiftOff Artists are not eligible to apply.
