Cancellation Policy for Residencies

When cancellations occur, MASC will make every effort to reschedule the event.

COVID-related conditions: MASC artists are not required to provide in-person programming at a venue if they are uncomfortable doing so. In these circumstances, we ask the artist to contact the venue to discuss this at the earliest possible time. This does not constitute a cancellation on behalf of MASC. 

Severe weather conditions: MASC artists are not required to travel to the venue if they deem it unsafe to do so. In these circumstances, we ask the artist to contact the school to discuss this at the earliest possible time.

This does not constitute a cancellation on behalf of MASC.
