Community Engagement
Now in our tenth year of residency programs, EtM is looking for better ways to serve our mission and communities. This year we will be introducing an interactive programming component to the EtM Con Edison Composer Residencies.

This can take the shape of a masterclass, assembly, workshop, meet and greet, and/or enrichment project to participants of all ages including youth, adults, and/or seniors. This will be in addition to the already required public program.

As part of your proposal, please tell us your ideas and plans for an interactive programming/enrichment project given the community and facility you have chosen as your first preference. *
