Town Hall is seeking an Artist in Residence to create a two dimensional piece of art that will serve as a visual installation of Town Hall’s land acknowledgment written by the elders and youth of UNEA Clear Sky Native Youth Council. We are ideally seeking a Coast Salish (particularly Duwamish) or otherwise Indigenous, Native American, Alaskan Indian, or First Nations artist for this Residency.
The artist selected for this Residency will create a new, two-dimensional work to serve as a visual installation of Town Hall’s land acknowledgment written by the elders and youth of UNEA Clear Sky Native Youth Council. The Resident will meet with UNEA Clear Sky youth and elders to discuss the land acknowledgment and its creation process, as well as participate in an end-of-tenure on stage program to discuss their work with Town Hall Seattle and UNEA Clear Sky Native Youth Council.
During their Residency the artist selected will be invited to use Town Hall’s space, events, speakers, and staff as a resource for inspiration and reflection. They will be encouraged to contemplate how their work will exist alongside our on stage programming and what impact their visual work could have on audience members and Town Hall supporters.
The Artist in Residence will receive $3,000 paid in three installments. The Artist in Residence will have a budget of up to $1,000 for materials and supplies. Additionally the Artist in Residence will have access to Town Hall’s facilities and events.
