Soulsville USA Artist Residency in Social Practice Art

Emerging Program member

We are now accepting applications for two social practice artists: one muralist and the other is open to all types of artistic practices. This is the launch of a pilot residency program. This is a rare chance for artists to work in the historic Soulsville district with residents on community engagement. The residency package includes:
• ARTISTIC STIPEND OF $10,000
• Working studio space
• Published catalog, video, and web based media for documentation and distribution purposes
APPLICATION DEADLINE: // 30 April 2017

Location

Memphis, Tennessee: United States

The Soulsville USA Artist Residency program will arrange functionally-appropriate studio space in a community gathering space throughout the course of the residency. The workspace will be located within a studio setting shared by other artists and working professionals but will require work outdoors in the neighborhood of Soulsville USA. The environment will allow participants to engage in public conversations and cultivate dialogue with residents and community stakeholder. Residents will activate the neighborhood through large-scale town halls, cultural programming and community improvement projects. SNA holds monthly membership meetings in a consensus-building format. The projects we have proposed for funding from NEA will work in concert with this yearlong effort in Soulsville USA.
