Creative Residencies at PlatteForum

Deadline: May 18, 2010 by 5:00 p.m. (RECEIVE)

Creative Residencies 2010-2011

Denver, CO
September 7, 2010 – August 5, 2011

PlatteForum’s artist-in-residence program (Creative Residencies) supports the creation and presentation of new works of art by artists in all genres. Its urban location in the heart of downtown Denver offers unique opportunities for artists to use the facility and adjacent outdoor spaces in dynamic ways. Throughout the residency period, the artist(s) use the facility as a studio environment where they create their work with open studio hours for the public to watch the work-in-process. Each Creative Resident dedicates time weekly to work with small groups of underserved youth in intensive workshops (Learning Labs) that build upon the ideas and forms of the resident artist.

Residencies culminate in the completion of a body of work presented to the public in exhibitions and performances at an opening reception at PlatteForum. The PlatteForum approach, pairing youth Learning Labs with the Creative Residency program, makes a valuable contribution to the city’s cultural discourse, impacts the lives of the youth participating, while fostering personal growth of the artist.

Who Can Apply
The Creative Residency program is open to artists in all genres such as visual, performing, design arts, new media, installation, filmmakers, writers, composers, book arts and crafts/folk arts. We welcome applications from established professional artists and emerging artists, as well as graduate students. Artists can apply as individuals or in collaborative teams.

A non-refundable processing fee of $25 is required with each application.
