Artists Residency Programme at Adishakti
The Adishakti Laboratory for Theatre Arts Research is a theatre, music, and dance company and a locus for hybrid performing arts. It is the home from which national and international performances, workshops, artist exchanges and research are generated. We support a holistic view of theatre arts and, this view of theatre finds expression in our campus, which is a cultural hub in the lap of nature.
We have welcomed many friends and practitioners of the arts to Adishakti over the years. The environment created by such meetings has been mutually enriching to our experiences and our praxis. Now we are looking to formalize a Residency Program that will allow for many more such interactions – and the creatively charged work that emerges from them.
Between the months of December and March, when we enjoy the most beautiful weather of the year, we open our doors to artists from all disciplines and all corners of the world. Bring your theatre rehearsals, your unwritten book, your developing choreography, your easel or anything else you want to commune with, to an environment that is charged with creative energy while at the same time comfortingly quiet, green and restful.

Call for Editorial Board Members: 'Arts Education Policy Review'
Arts Education Policy Review, a peer-reviewed journal published by Routledge/Taylor & Francis, is accepting applications for three-year term editorial board positions – one in dance, one in music, one in theatre, and one in visual art.
Interested applicants should send a letter of interest and CV to Editor-in-Chief Colleen Conway at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1, 2012. Applications will be reviewed by the Executive Editors and applicants will be n
otified of the status of the application by November 15th. The terms begin in January 2013.
Arts Education Policy Review presents discussion of major policy issues in arts education in the United States and throughout the world. Addressing education in music, visual arts, theatre, and dance, the journal presents a variety of views and emphasizes critical analysis. Its goal is to produce the most comprehensive and rigorous exchange of ideas available on arts education policy. Policy examinations from multiple viewpoints are a valuable resource not only for arts educators, but also for administrators, policy analysts, advocacy groups, parents, and audiences – all those involved in the arts and concerned about their role in education.
Arts Education Policy Review does not promote individuals, institutions, methods, or products. It does not aim to repeat commonplace ideas. Articles show originality, probe deeply, and take discussion beyond common wisdom and familiar rhetoric. Articles that merely restate the importance of arts education, call attention to the existence of issues long since addressed, or repeat standard solutions are not published.
