Located in the Garfield Park neighborhood of Indianapolis, Indiana, this long-term ownership residency program is an innovative approach to supporting artists who use their talents and skills to help drive positive change in the community. Our goal is to create a perpetual system to help avoid displacement of artist neighbors from affordable housing and allow artists to enjoy equity as homeowners while they work, in part, to collaborate with other neighbors to boost the culture, creativity, livability, safety, health, and economy of the local and greater community.

WHO IS BEHIND APLR?
This is a new partnership between the socially-engaging art and placemaking organization Big Car Collaborative (“Big Car”), nonprofit developer Riley Area Community Development Corporation (“Riley”); and the Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership (“INHP”).

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A RESIDENT ARTIST?
We view the label of artists broadly, to include creatives, makers, culinary arts, designers - anyone who considers themselves an artist. Artists will engage in the program, focusing on the Garfield Park neighborhood for their first three years. They then may have a sabbatical from public work if they desire. In the next three years, the artist can propose work for the community more broadly (beyond the neighborhood) if they desire. So the commitment to public work is for seven years with one year off in the middle. This plan and timeframe is negotiable and can be adjusted with each artist resident.

• Residency artists will receive research and training support from Big Car staff and others as you will be representing our partnership in the community.
• Artists will open their home for some form of public engagement during neighborhood-wide “open house” events 4-6 times per year.
• Artists will dedicate 16+ hours per month to working with the public in the community for six (6) years in exchange rent reduction.
• Artists will have opportunities to participate in Big Car organized exhibition and collaboration opportunities. We will encourage partnerships between resident artists, visiting artists, other local artists, and Big Car staff artists.
