CRITICAL BREAKS CIRCLE is a development opportunity for artists to create additional reach for their work with new audiences, communities, and other partners. The circle functions as a “family” within the Hi-ARTS network and provides critical, long-term support to some of Hi-ARTS’ most promising artists. CRITICAL BREAKS CIRCLE affiliated artists receive specific assistance on a two-year basis from Hi-ARTS that includes:


  • Brokering relationships between artists, agents, other presenters, and cross sector collaborators
  • Providing mini-grants for artists to re-visit and/or produce work
  • Involving artists in the selection process for one of Hi-ARTS' residencies each year
