5 Local Artists To Have Residencies At The Grand Theater This Fall – Kingston | The Canadian News

Miss Emily, Camille Spencer, Kay Kenney, The Gertrudes and Gary Rasberry are the five local artists the City of Kingston is investing in this fall at the Grand Theater as part of its residency program.

The Grand Theater Local Arts Residency Program began earlier this summer and after a successful first phase, the program will continue through November.

The show was in response to how the COVID-19 pandemic was affecting the performing arts locally. It is intended to focus on Kingston artists while offering participants a safe space to explore new ideas.

Artists were selected last spring based on submissions evaluated by a committee of professional artists submitted as part of Grand OnStage. Those selected receive a professional workspace and guidance, promotional support, and funding through a $ 1,000 fee for artistic expenses.
