Application Deadline: October 15,  2018

EMCArts is inviting organizations to apply to serve as hosts for their Community Change Through the Arts Workshops. 

Arts in Complex Community Change: Six half-day interactive workshops over 3 to 6 months, for teams from up to 15 community agencies and arts organizations who want to strengthen their ability to work adaptively and address complex community challenges through the arts.

Artists as Change Agents within Complexity: Four whole-day sessions over 2 to 4 months, with up to 10 artists who are interested in developing their artistic practice as a central methodology for systemic change in their local community. The workshops orient artists to five capabilities needed for systems change, and explore the use they can make of them in a community context.

Major support from the Kresge Foundation covers up to 70% of the program costs, which means the cost to local hosts is only $25,000 to $30,000. Availability is limited to four communities.
