10 Oct Calling All Artists!
Elsewhere Studios has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Arts in Society Program for a project, INSPIRED: Art at Work, which will bring two artists to Paonia, CO, in summer 2018 for a two-month fully funded residency and will provide a stipend and materials for one local artist.
CHC is proud to be one of five local partner organizations involved in this inspiring and innovative project (Citizens for a Healthy Community, Western Colorado Conservation Center, Farm and Food Alliance, Solar Energy International, and the North Fork Valley Creative Coalition). Working closely with these partner organizations, scientists, and policy makers, artists will create socially-engaged artworks that address issues stemming from the impacts of legacy coal mining, such as: preservation of culture and environment, creation of a resilient economy in rural Colorado, pressures created by oil and gas development, and loss of jobs.These collaborations and a final symposium are designed to broadly engage the community and promote dialog about concerns vital to the future of this rural area.
Application deadline is November 15, 2017
