The ten-month paid residency program gives preference to artists whose work examines themes relevant to South Side communities and engages issues of race and ethnicity. Artists applying for the program should have a demonstrated history of rooting their practice in community engagement. The Artist-in-Residence program is typified by active immersion in public-facing aspects of Arts + Public Life and the Center for the Study of Race Politics and Culture. During the ten months, artists are often present leading public workshops, programs, artists talks, and hosting studio visits, dinners, screenings, and/or readings.
