Call for applications – Santa Fe Art Institute announces Immigration / Emigration Thematic Residency, USA
The Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) implements yearlong thematic programming that addresses pertinent questions facing diverse regional and global communities. By hosting residencies for creative practitioners, fostering partnerships with regional cultural and educational organizations, and integrating social entrepreneurial and education initiatives, SFAI aspires to transform Santa Fe into a hub for positive social change reflecting the greatest needs of our times.
SFAI is pleased to announce Immigration / Emigration as its next residency and programmatic theme. From September 2015 through May 2016, SFAI and its community partners will explore several questions:
Who immigrates/emigrates and why? How do migrants’ journeys contribute to who we are as a collective community? What happens when diverse communities come together with local and global advocates, activists, and policy makers to explore alternative models, narratives, projects, and interventions relating to immigration and emigration’s complex terrain? How can SFAI cultivate participatory discourse between invested local stakeholders and creative practitioners that examines complexities and inequities in current and historic immigration systems in the United States?
Deadline: January 15, 2015
