Artist Residency at Third Story Detroit988380_417286028402998_1690053904_n

Deadline: Ongoing

A social engagement artist residency and exhibition space located in our house, in the historic Hubbard Farms neighborhood of Southwest Detroit.

The mission of Third Story is to infuse the neighborhood with positive activity, as well as promote open dialog and cultural exchange, by bringing contemporary art to the community in a non-traditional space and in non-traditional ways.

Artists are invited to take residence in our home – as a member of our household and community – to have a deeply involved experience in Detroit and to create an exhibition and/or project for community engagement.

Visiting artists will be:
– Hosted by a dedicated team of actively engaged Detroiters.
– Provided with a living space, studio space and exhibition space within our home.
– Immersed in the community through walking and driving tours, facilitated social interaction with neighbors and local artists, attending a wide variety of public events, provided reference materials about Detroit.
– Assisted in hosting an exhibition or other community engagement project.

Our goal for this residency program is to offer visiting artists an in-depth introduction to the City of Detroit – through walking and driving tours, facilitated social interaction with neighbors and local artists, attending a wide variety of public events, and providing reference materials about Detroit – while at the same time bringing contemporary art to the community in a non-traditional space and in non-traditional ways.
