Part 1

We are excited to invite you to participate in the Artist in Residence program at the Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts. We hope you apply! In this document you will find information outlining the program and details for your presentation. We look forward to working with you to make this a beneficial and successful experience for you, our teens and our community. 

The Eliot School Artists in Residence program engages a Boston-based artist each year to work closely with a group of art- passionate teens, from our Teen Bridge Program, to produce a body of art with thoughtful community engagement at its core. The program supports practicing artists whose creative practice is rooted in relevant social issues and community engagement, with a particular interest in youth.

As a result, the program provides an immersive arts experience for our Teen Bridge artists. The opportunity to work closely with the Artist in Residence, creating public artwork informed by community process, is an important part of their experience.

During the residency, the artist receives administrative support, a space to make work with the teens, a stipend for participation and an opportunity to showcase the final work through a gallery exhibition or other culminating event.

To be considerate of applicants’ time, the selection process is a two-part process. All applicants are invited to complete this part of the application.

·  Part One will require a short application that checks eligibility and provides an overview of the Artist’s art practice and past work with Boston communities. Artists are not asked to submit a specific project proposal for part one.

Three finalists will be invited to complete part two of the application.

·   Part Two will require a full written proposal that includes a specific theme, project, and a presentation to Teen Bridge Artists. We understand that the specific theme and outcome will be transformed as a result of thoughtful community engagement. All participants will receive a stipend of $100 to complete Part Two.
