PlatteForum Artist Residency Call for Applications

PlatteForum's Artist Residency program in Denver, Colorado supports contemporary artists as they work. Our goal is to strengthen individual practice through collaboration and community engagement.

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, our 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. $35 application fee. Deadline: April 3rd, 11:59pm. Apply here.
