At IGBIS we believe that the investment in a Performing Artist Residency program has far-reaching benefits for a wide range of our students, and will contribute significantly to the ongoing development of our arts community at IGBIS. The involvement of students from other schools and associated publicity would be of benefit as we promote our School as an arts hub.
