Call For Applications: SFAI Thematic Residency – Immigration / Emigration

SFAI announces Immigration / Emigration as its next residency and programmatic theme. From September 2015 through May 2016, SFAI and its community partners will explore several questions:

Who immigrates/emigrates and why? How do migrants’ journeys contribute to who we are as a collective community? What happens when diverse communities come together with local and global advocates, activists, and policy makers to explore alternative models, narratives, projects, and interventions relating to immigration and emigration’s complex terrain? How can SFAI cultivate participatory discourse between invested local stakeholders and creative practitioners that examines complexities and inequities in current and historic immigration systems in the United States?

SFAI seeks applications from all creative practitioners aspiring to create positive social impact in the realm of immigration and emigration. Community activists, architects, designers, educators, studio artists, computer programmers, poets,  film makers, philosophers, curators, and policy makers are among the myriad of practitioners with whom SFAI aspires to create dynamic experiences and lasting change. Applications may take the form of project proposals, and are accepted from individuals as well as collaborative teams.

The deadline for applications is January 22, 2015.
