PlatteForum’s 2017 - 2018 Artist Residency
Deadline to apply is Monday, April 3rd
Courtney Kemp, 2017 Resident Artist
PlatteForum’s Artist Residency program supports contemporary artists as they work, strengthening individual practice through collaboration and community engagement. Our residencies are designed to celebrate creativity and foster and challenge artists to incorporate a bit of social practice, or social narrative into their process. Each resident artist becomes a catalyst for innovative and expansive thinking about what art is and can be. While artists share their creative process and work with youth, PlatteForum gives guidance and ongoing support throughout each artist residency and beyond. Such support generates dialogue with the larger community about the role of the artist in society.
Located in a rich urban context, PlatteForum’s dynamic, artist-centered residencies engage this community in the creation of new work where artists, youth, and the public collaborate. Preference will be given to artists whose work addresses the larger questions in our world today such as race, class, social and ecological issues. In doing this we hope to provoke dialogue that helps shape our public narratives and cultural conversations.
- Residency Schedule: September 2017 – August 2018
- Artist Benefits: Six-to-eight-week residency, a weekly stipend ($250)
- Community Engagement: Share ideas with and demonstrate process to a diverse group of youth in structured workshops (approximately 4-6 hours per week, supported by staff)
