Cave Canem Fall and Spring Workshops

Since 1999, nearly 1000 emerging poets have participated in Cave Canem’s community-based workshops, rare opportunities to work with accomplished poets for free or low-cost fees. Limited to an enrollment of 12-15, eight and ten-session workshops offer rigorous instruction, careful critique and an introduction to the work of established poets—all within the welcoming environment of our Brooklyn, NY loft. The workshops are open to Adult poets of color living in New York City’s five boroughs.

Roulette's Commissions and Residencies Program

In partnership with the Jerome Foundation since 1983, Roulette has founded both a Commissioning Program for four artists annually (officially established in 1997), and an Artist Residency Program for five artists annually (established in 2010). These programs accelerate the careers of talented musical creators, giving them the financial and technical resources to create early signature work in our state-of-the-art theater.

While commissions are selected by a committee of nominators, and residencies are selected by Roulette's Artistic Director, Roulette is always excited to learn about NYC artists creating new, experimental musical work. Please email with a proposal and work samples to introduce yourself!
