Engaging Artists in Community Program
The Engaging Artists in Community Program supports artists with socially oriented art practices who wish to work collaboratively within communities in Richmond. The program targets culturally diverse and multi-generational audiences and aims to foster cross-cultural exchange, inclusive community building and education on issues and topics of relevance to communities.
Community-based artworks can express a shared goal or theme and provoke dialogue on ideas related to cultural identity, social history or the environment. Artist projects can leave a physical or social legacy for the community and may include, but is not limited to public performances, sculptures, participatory art installations, hands-on art activities, workshops, exhibitions, digital media based artwork and other socially engaged art forms. Projects commissioned from this program provide community participants with a greater sense of self, identity, community and place through art-making experiences.
