In conjunction with the 2020 Filter Photo Festival, join us for a Q&A with Megha Ralapati, Residency Manager at Hyde Park Art Center. She will start with a presentation on the ecology of residency programs, including the various types, the benefits of each to both artists and institutions, and how artists can determine which program might be best for them. Additionally, she will share the concept and goals of Hyde Part Art Center’s residency program. The program will conclude with a Q&A with participants.
