The Boston Center for the Arts’ (BCA) Artist Residency Program provides a platform and support for the development of new work, while simultaneously offering artists unique opportunities to connect and collaborate with our community. Artists-in-residence each receive studio and funding support during their fifteen-week stay at the BCA.
The Boston Center for the Arts is accepting applications for the 2014-2015 Artist Residency Program with a primary focus on public engagement. This season, the BCA’s Artist Residency Program puts special emphasis on artist projects that engage the public in direct and innovative ways, whether through collaborative activities, participatory public installations, performance, intervention or other imaginative activation.
The BCA is now accepting applications for the program, but the deadline is July 7 via the BCA website.
Artists will be expected to present their work to the public, through open studios, workshops and talks. A vital part of the Artist Residency Program at the BCA is public awareness. The artist is expected to participate in press interviews, media tours and other such requests.
