The Creatives Project (TCP) Announces Expansion of
CCHP Artist-in-Residency Program
press inquiries: email@example.com
The Creatives Project (TCP) is proud to announce its first offering of subsidized housing through its Artist-in-Residency program, The Creative Community Housing Project (CCHP).
The program currently provides six local artists with promotional support, exhibition opportunities, and free studio space at the Goat Farm Arts Center in Atlanta.
A new partnership with Atlanta real-estate investment firm Pohl Real Estate expands the program to include housing. This fall, two local artists will be selected to share residency in a home provided by Pohl Real Estate. The residency will allow each artist an extremely affordable live/work environment while engaging their creative skills for the greater good. Each recipient will complete arts-based youth outreach through TCP's Community Arts Program (CAP) whose beneficiaries include VSA Arts of Georgia, Jacob's Ladder, and One Love Generation.
"The act of creating is great for the mind, body, & soul. It's a wonderful thing to have a place that nurtures this through a diverse array of artists, AND gives back to the community. This is one of those rare win/win situations in which artists receive much needed space, Atlanta’s youth are connected with creative professional mentors, and the community at large receives art that is engaging and inspirational.“ - Jerushia Graham current TCP “Artist-in-Studio” resident.
APPLICATIONS ARE DUE August 15th 2012 12:00 AM EST
