PUBLIC PRACTICE ARTISTS, STORYTELLERS (residency, August 9) / by Bear Guerra

Via Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society:

“The annual Artist in Residence program furthers our work in Othering and Belonging and integrates with the Institute's focus on arts and culture as a primary way to advance our collective vision of inclusion. 

Belonging is deeply ontological—it speaks to who we are and who we can be. We recognize that stories, symbols, relationships, and rituals are central to a sense of belonging. They also motivate, frame, and ground the systems, political parties, laws, and actions that either advance belonging or enforce othering. 

We are looking for work from the Artist in Residence that seeks to advance and expand our concept of belonging at the nexus of being human and the systems and structures that operationalize structural inclusion. 

The residency supports artists to deepen their practice. The chosen artist’s project and process will illuminate and advance our understanding of belonging in new and complex ways. In particular, we are interested in works that explore practices of dialogue and engage a broad audience through process and/or outcomes. The Artist in Residence will be selected by a diverse group of public artists, advocates, and partners from the Haas Institute and its network. While the residency may be combined with existing or ongoing projects, we do expect discrete activities and/or outcomes that are generated through the relationship to the Institute and the guiding frameworks of the residency.”

DEADLINE: August 9.
