Chicago Artists Coalition is excited to introduce the inaugural FIELD/WORK Residency, an educational program designed for artists wanting a deeper engagement in vital issues in artists’ professional development, critical feedback, and support in designing a pathway to progress with individual career goals.
The 2016-2017 FIELD/WORK Residency runs from October 15, 2016 – April 10, 2017. Over the course of the 6-month program, resident artists will work to set and achieve professional goals while building long-term plans for the future. The FIELD/WORK Residency curriculum combines nuts-and-bolts entrepreneurial skills with deep thinking about creative practice and community building to empower artists to create the foundation for a sustainable creative career.
Have questions or want to learn more? Join this FIELD/WORK Residency Info Session where we will share more details of the program and answer your questions! A second info session will be held September 6.
Applications will open August 8, 2016 and will be open until September 19, 2016 at 11:59pm. CAC encourages artists of all disciplines and career stages to apply.
