The Performance Curators Initiatives Works in Partnership With the Aurora Artist Residency Program and Space

The Performance Curators Initiatives (PCI) works in close partnership with the Aurora Artist Residency Program and Space (AARPS) located in Dingalan, Aurora.

Founded by the same founder of PCI, the Aurora Artist Residency Program and Space is an independent and non-profit residency program and space, focused on initiating discussion on community empowerment and sustainable environment, through culture and the arts. It is a combination of research-based and thematic residency, preferably in collaboration with the local municipality of Dingalan, various sectoral communities, or even non-government organisations in the area.

The residency is located in the quaint property Casita Aurora, Barangay Butas na Bato, Dingalan, Aurora in the cusp of the vast Sierra Madre mountain ranges and the Pacific Ocean; and is open to artist events and programs through reservations and artist residencies via application or invitation, throughout the year. We are working hard at being able to support our artists financially, but as our residency is artist and independently run, we can only presently offer accommodation and research coordination assistance with communities or institutions in the area.
