The National Public Housing Museum’s Artist as Instigator Residency leverages arts and culture to make creative public policy interventions around housing and related issues. The annual residency supports artists, activists, and cultural workers to incubate ideas and produce new work in conjunction with social justice organizing and equitable development initiatives.
This is an ideal opportunity for people with a demonstrated history of socially engaged projects. Priority will be given to applicants who propose ideas that are close to or ready for the implementation phase and align with the museum’s mission and vision. The next Artist as Instigator will work with the museum from Fall 2023 to Summer 2024.
This year-long program leverages arts and culture to make creative public policy interventions around housing and related social justice issues. There is a $10,000 honorarium plus a $10,000 budget for project expenses. Projects supported by the residency may take place anywhere within the United States, including Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
