“The most significant impact from this residency was offering a safe and nourishing space to create, plan and be an artist. [...] This residency on Governors Island proves to be an example of the need for professional artist workspace to develop and sustain our practices in a safe, tech-friendly, resourced and well-kept environment. From this residency I was able to organize ideas, create two new dance films, test technology, explore movement and feel like I could leave my work at a location to give myself time to relax at home.”
– André Zachery, Resident at Arts Center 2020
