Apply to Be a Public Artist in Residency

Public Artist in Residency (PAIR), New York, United States

Deadline: November 12, 2017 

Public Artists in Residence (PAIR) is a municipal residency program that embeds artists in city government to propose and implement creative solutions to pressing civic challenges. With Commissioner-level support, DCLA issues an open call for artists based on artistic excellence and demonstrated knowledge of the particular social issues addressed in the residency. Each PAIR is a minimum of one year. The residency begins with a research phase, during which the artist spends time at the agency meeting staff and learning about its operations and initiatives while also introducing their art practice and process to agency staff. The research phase concludes with a proposal from the artist outlining one or more public-facing participatory projects that will be implemented in partnership with the agency. To be eligible to apply, artists must be at least 18 years old and live in NYC.
