2018/19 will be Links Hall’s 40th anniversary season, and we will be taking the opportunity to showcase Links Hall’s many artistic Alumni. As such our next call for CoMISSION Curatorial Residents will take place in the fall of 2018.

We apologies for the gap year but we hope you will join us in celebrating 40 years of ground breaking performance experiments, and we look forward to diving into your exciting curatorial ideas in the fall of 2018.

The Links Hall Artistic Associates (AA’s) program was founded in the Spring of 2005 when three AA’s were selected to each curate a series of performances in the Links Hall studio. This experiment launched Links Hall’s Curatorial Residency which seeks to enhance the quality of performance programming in Chicago,create professional development opportunities for Chicago’s artistic producers, generate new presentation opportunities for performance in Chicago, and provide much needed financial support to the city’s self producing performance community.

Links Hall’s CoMISSION Curatorial Residencies are awarded annually by a panel selected by Links Hall’s Programming Co-Chairs Cheryl Lynn Bruce, Julia Mayer and Links Hall’s staff, each selected project is given a stipend of up to $3,000 to produce their programming at Links Hall and each program is give the full support of Links Hall’s administration, marketing and production staff.

Links Hall’s Curatorial Residencies are supported by the generous contributions of the Links Hall Commissioning Collective, a handful of dedicated individuals who are committed to excellence in Chicago’s live arts
