OCA Dallas Cultural Plan 2018 Artist Residency


Attention all artists! Here’s your opportunity to have a hand in the actual development of the Dallas Cultural Plan! We’re inviting all emerging and established Dallas-based artists, arts educators, and designers to submit applications for a week-long, micro-residency within a department of the City of Dallas. Applicants should demonstrate a connection to the culture and city of Dallas, as well as a strong interest in contributing to the strengthening of Dallas’s arts ecosystem.

As a resident, you will engage with city staff to:

– Formulate and propose strategies for the creation of a formalized residency program
– Increase integration of arts, culture, and design with city activities
– Identify opportunities for increased cross collaboration with the Office of Cultural Affairs
– Identify where creativity is already present in the department, even when it’s not acknowledged as a creative practice
