MISSION

Vineyard Arts Project is an incubator for the creation of new work in dance & theatre. An artist residency located on the beautiful island of Martha’s Vineyard, Vineyard Arts Project provides visiting artists with the necessary time & rehearsal space, allowing them to focus solely on the development of their new work. 

Vineyard Arts Project offers the community of Martha’s Vineyard unparalleled access to the creative process by presenting in-studio performances with a pay-what-you-can suggested donation.

Along with providing a comfortable space for artists to innovate and experiment, Vineyard Arts Project initiates young artist training programs (Rosie’s Theater Kids, Musical Theatre Lab) to nurture up-and-coming talent and promote future generations of artists
