Announcing the Soulsville USA Social Practice Artist Residency Program

Community LIFT is pleased to announce the launch of our pilot residency program in Social Practice Art.

Social practice art is a form of artwork that focuses on collaboration and outreach to individuals, communities, and institutions. The success of the artwork is based on the relationship built between the community, it’s members, and the artwork. Each piece responds to the needs of the community and attempts to help solve problems by community involvement. Social practice art fosters creative thinking and provokes positive social change by amplifying the already rich culture of the community and reaching out to it’s members for new, innovative ideas. The value of the artwork created resides, not only in the finished product, but in the experiences the participants have during the process and the creation of a stronger community. We are now accepting applications for two social practice artists: one muralist and the other is open to all types of artistic practices. We will be hosting the two artists with stipends and studio space to support the development of their work with community members in producing a community engaged work of art.  

The residency package includes:
• Stipend of $10,000 
• Working studio space 
• Published catalog, video, and web based media for documentation and distribution purposes

Applications are due April 30, 2017.
