Holy Trinity Residencies exist to create mutual benefit for the resident and Holy Trinity. Residents may be individuals or groups in the community that offer an artistic talent that serves the wider community. This might be a poet, an author, a playwright, a painter, a singer, an actor, a theatre group, opera company, choir, orchestra or small ensemble, dance ensemble, dance class, visual arts group, or any other types of arts activity. To apply for a Residency or to learn more, please contact the Bookings Administrator.
