The Watermill Center: 2024 International Summer Program

The Watermill Center 2024 International Summer Program

Our longest-standing program, the International Summer Program unites a community of international artists for an annual creative intensive. Since 1992, the Summer Program has provided a unique opportunity for artists to develop new works alongside other emerging and established creative professionals, to forge an international community of collaborators across disciplines, and to push the boundaries of contemporary creative practice.

Culminating in The Watermill Center’s Annual Summer Benefit, the Summer Program allows artists to develop their practice in a communal and experimental environment. Participating artists share meals, exchange ideas, collaborate on projects, attend workshops, and participate in the daily life of The Watermill Center. The program also provides opportunities to work with Founder/Artistic Director Robert Wilson and his collaborators on workshops, staging rehearsals, and installations.

Artists-in-Residence are immersed in an extensive collection of resources, including; 20,000 square feet of multi-purpose interiors and outdoor stages; a theater production archive; The Watermill Center Library; The Watermill Center Collection; and ten acres of landscaped grounds and sculpture gardens.

Since 2008, the tuition for each International Summer Program artists has been provided in full by the Byrd Hoffman Water Mill Foundation. The Foundation covers housing, food, local transportation, materials needed for work in the program, and the facility’s operating cost. The Foundation raises these funds through sponsorships from foundations, as well as individual benefactors who support the mission of The Center by joining the Watermill Mentor Program.

Artists are required to pay the costs of their travel to New York and The Watermill Center. We encourage you to find individual funding through scholarships, foundations, and grants if needed. The Watermill Center provides a modest stipend to help offset travel costs and personal expenses.
