The New Harmony Project
The New Harmony Project to bring together talented writers, directors, dramaturgs, filmmakers, actors, and students from around the country. Participants gather each spring to create a nurturing environment for writers -- a setting free of the restrictive pressures of the professional world. In this community, every artist becomes a resource to the process of the writer. Through an intensive series of readings and rehearsals, each writer is afforded the rare opportunity of having the freedom to explore ideas without the fear of failure.
Now in its 28th year, it is still firmly rooted in the tenets upon which it was founded. The mission being to not only to develop new scripts for film, television, and theatre, but also to positively impact the culture by seeking out and nurturing writers whose work offers hope and celebrates the dignity of the human spirit.
In the fall of each year, The Project seeks submissions for the spring conference. Once the writers and their projects are chosen by a selection committee, The Project assists each writer by identifying a team and creating a preliminary strategy for the evolutionary process to follow. Each project is assigned a director, a dramaturg, and a cast of actors for the 14 day conference each spring.
