INSPIRED: Art at Work -Funded Socially Engaged Art Residency

INSPIRED: Art at Work – Request For Proposals!
Elsewhere Studios has been awarded a grant from the Arts in Society Program for a project, INSPIRED: Art at Work, which will bring two artists to Paonia, CO, in summer 2018 for a two-month fully funded residency, and will provide a stipend and materials for one local artist. Working closely with five local partner organizations (Citizens for a Healthy Community, Western Slope Conservation Center, Farm and Food Alliance, Solar Energy International, and the North Fork Valley Creative Coalition), scientists, and policy makers, they will create socially-engaged artworks that address issues stemming from the impacts of legacy coal mining, such as: preservation of culture and environment, creation of a resilient economy in rural Colorado, pressures created by oil and gas development, and loss of jobs. These collaborations and a final symposium are designed to broadly engage the community and promote dialog about concerns vital to the future of this rural area.

Open to visual artists, writers, composers, and performance artists.

Application deadline is November 15, 2017
