Create Change is our artist development program, designed to connect communities and artists in meaningful ways. We envision building a corps of artists inspired and equipped to work alongside everyday folks in creative endeavors right where they live. Over the long-term, we intend to foster and support artist-leaders who are empowered by, committed to, and fully conversant in community-attuned art practices.
The Fellowship program is for artists who may or may not have experience doing community-based projects and are interested in developing or deepening their socially-engaged creative practice. Fellows may live in the five boroughs or close enough to NYC to attend all program activities between April and October.
Create Change Artist-in-Residence Program
The Residency is for artists of color with a demonstrated record of developing community-based public art projects who are comfortable engaging their neighbors in participatory, socially-engaged work. Residents should live in the neighborhood where they plan to work: Bed-Stuy, Harlem, or Hunts Point / Longwood.
