Satellite Projects

In addition to programs taking place at Flux Factory’s home-base on 29th Street, Flux Factory produces programs at partner institutions regularly. Alumni of Flux’s Artist-in-Residency program are eligible to participate in these projects, which typically receive special accommodations for travel, public programs, and per diems. Collective leadership and Resident-led programming are always the source of artistic direction for Satellite Projects. Flux recognizes the challenges of receiving funding for projects abroad and addresses this by opening doors for artists that might have otherwise remained closed.
