Over the past 25 years, artists in the International Summer Program have utilized The Watermill Center as a home and a workshop to create and develop works that critically investigate, challenge, and extend the existing norms of performance practice. Today, the International Summer Program welcomes over 100 artists from across disciplines to create works that engage the local community.
The Watermill Center Artist Residency Program began in 2006, when The Center officially opened as a year-round facility. Each year, up to twenty collectives and individual artists take up residence at The Center. To date, we have hosted over 200 residencies featuring artists from more than 65 nations.

The Watermill Alumni Directory contains a variety of projects that were developed at The Watermill Center as part of The Artist Residency Program since it’s inception in 2006. Watermill’s mission is to provide artists with the opportunity to focus on their process. Past residents have performed work, that was created and developed at Watermill, at festivals and venues including the New Museum,Whitney Museum of American Art, The Kitchen, Roulette, PS122, American Realness, Clocktower Gallery, Performa, Vienna’s Donaufestival, Kampnagel in Hamburg, CPR – Center for Performance Research, and the Baryshnikov Arts Center, among others. The Watermill Alumni Directory was compiled in 2016 through an outreach to our artists and is not complete. If you are an alum of the year-round Artist Residency Program and wish to be included, please email email@example.com
