The 2015 Emerging Program Institute will be hosted at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. For more than 30 years, the Bemis Center has supported artists through its Old Market residency program at its 110,000-square-foot main campus located in downtown Omaha’s historic Old Market neighborhood. With a mission of creating transformative opportunities for artists to explore and realize their most important ideas, the residency offers extensive technical and production support, a robust creative community, dramatic studios and exhibition spaces, access to a network of regular community partners and a monthly stipend.

The Bemis Center extends the reach of its residency program by supporting community-engaged artistic practices and by creating exhibitions and public programs that provide a window into the creative processes of Bemis residents.  In 2015 the Center will launch its first thematic residencies - focused on food production and consumption - as well as a new program designed for parent-artists.


Additional site visits, tours, and event hosts will be announced soon.
