A CONVERSATION WITH THE 2011/12 ARTS WORKERS AS ARTISTS RESIDENTS

Wednesday, August 8, 2012, 6:30pm

Gisela Insuaste, Theresa Marchetta, Douglas Paulson, Roddy Schrock, Chad Stayrook, David Terry

As we get ready for our next round of the Residency for Arts Workers as Artists, we invite you to join the “graduating” 2011-12 residents to share stories, work, and discuss the particularities of negotiating between an independent art practice and a demanding position at a cultural org.

Q & A led by Michelle Levy, founder of the Residency for Arts Workers as Artists, and Director, EFA Project Space.

Still in its pilot phase, the Residency for Arts Workers as Artists identifies a distinct population of practicing artists who work untiringly to support fellow artists through positions at arts organizations. This unique residency aims to nurture and catalyze the artist/arts workers’ artistic aspirations while addressing how these dual roles can effectively strengthen one another. Participants are nominated and selected based on their outstanding contribution to the art community, and their potential for artistic growth through a peer engaged, interactive environment.
