Application Process

Eligibility criteria:

  • Artists must demonstrate a deep commitment and interest in engaging with the local community

  • Applicants can be at any stage of their careers, but priority may be given to emerging artists

  • Eligible disciplines include traditional or folkloric arts, visual arts, literary arts, dance, theater, film/ video, music, performance-based arts, architecture, design, arts education, and interdisciplinary/ hybrid arts.

Applications will be reviewed by the ARC 3409 Arts & Landscaping committee members and Board of Directors, and possibly local outside partners using the below review criteria:

  • Aesthetic rigor and artistic excellence

  • The artist's commitment to engage and thrive in a community-centric environment
