The Creatives Project’s Creative Community Housing Project (CCHP) is offering an “Artist-in-Residence” Program that will provide two Atlanta artists with low-cost housing for two years. Here’s a detailed description:
A new partnership with Atlanta real-estate investment firm Pohl Real Estate expands our program to include housing. This fall, two local artists will be selected to share a three-bedroom EarthCraft-renovated home located in the historic west Atlanta neighborhood of Adair Park. The residency will allow each artist an extremely affordable live/work environment while engaging their creative skills for the greater good. Each recipient will complete arts-based youth outreach through TCP’s Community Arts Program (CAP) whose beneficiaries include VSA Arts of Georgia, Jacob’s Ladder, and One Love Generation. While in the program residents will also receive promotional support, exhibition opportunities and professional development.
Send in your application today! All applications are due on Wednesday, August 15th at 12am (so send it in on Tuesday night).
I have been a part of the Creatives Project’s studio residency since last fall and it has been an amazingly rewarding experience. The studio space, outreach opportunities, and camaraderie with the other five residents have been a great resource for my artistic practice. I look forward meeting this year’s new residents!
