Dallas Cultural Plan: Micro-Residency Symposium
April 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Individual artists as well as arts organizations have a powerful place in shaping the city of Dallas. To that end, the Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA) has embarked on a “micro-residency” as a part of its cultural planning process. Join us Monday, April 23rd, 6:30-8pm, to hear from participants about their experiences and recommendations for continuing to integrate the arts into City practices.
About the micro-residency program:
This truly unique, immersive experience has embedded an artist in six City departments to;
- – Identify ways that artists might assist City agencies in achieving their goals (i.e.safer streets, more clear signage, etc.)
- – Increase integration of arts, culture, and design with City activities,
- – Recognize opportunities for cross-collaboration between multiple City departments and the OCA
- – Formulate and propose strategies for the creation of a formalized (ongoing) residency program.
The artist residency is a crucial part of the Dallas Cultural Planning strategy development process. It will establish a shared understanding of the ways that City departments work as well as the artists process and break down silos by providing practical ways for them to work toward shared goals.
