The Santa Fe Art Institute is seeking dynamic creative thinkers, artists, designers, educators, policy makers, poets, architects, journalists, and activists for its 2016-17 Artists and Writers Residency Program focussed on the theme of Water Rights. The deadline for applications is December 18.
Because water is seen, now more than ever, as a contested resource, SFAI is committed to bringing together local, national, and global thinkers and creators to collectively expand and revise our knowledge of what we think we know about water rights. New Mexico is rich in its relationship to water–a position created over a long history of corporate, environmental, political, and multicultural claims to this essential resource. From September 2016 through June of 2017, SFAI and its community partners will explore ways to address inherent inequalities relating to water rights and the use and misuse of this essential substance.
SFAI supports more than 60 residents per year in a cohesive, theme-focused creative environment that fosters interaction and communication. Get more information and apply at SFAI.ORG or email Nina Elder, Residency Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org
