LOS ANGELES – RFQ – ACLU Artist in Residence

In RFQ on April 24, 2019 at 11:24 pm


The ACLU of Southern California inaugural Artist-in-Residence program will embed an artist into the ACLU SoCal for a year-long collaboration. This unique opportunity will create a platform for the artist to work closely with the ACLU SoCal in developing, implementing, and promoting creative strategies through the lens of the artist’s practice.  More broadly, the AIR can aid in developing in an artistic approach for any aspect of the ACLU SoCal’s activities. Using art as a framework and material, this partnership will allow the ACLU SoCal to conceptualize its work and activities from an empowered position of change through creation. It is through this spirit of productive, creative energy that the AIR and the ACLU SoCal will engage allies and build awareness.

ELIGIBILITY: This residency is open to established and emerging professional artists who live or work in Southern California. The AIR must be available to participate in onsite meetings with ACLU SoCal staff members in their office in Los Angeles during the duration of the residency.

BUDGET: The AIR will be given an honorarium of $15,000 as an artist fee. Costs  associated with the execution, production, and installation of engagement and activations will be negotiated with the ACLU SoCal.

DEADLINE: June 5, 2019, 11:59pm PST

QUESTIONS: Do NOT contact the ACLU SoCal with questions regarding the RFQ. Please direct any inquiries to LeBasse Projects, the consulting firm for the AIR program. LeBasse Projects,
