Dear Artist Community,
We are excited to announce that the application for the LCAC Artist Training Program is now available! Our goal for the training is to develop a learning community among established and emerging artists that can support one another through these unprecedented times.
LCAC Artist Training Program
Background In December 2019, the LCAC kicked off a Listening Tour that is steering the design of our programming by helping us to identify the creative needs and priorities of our local artists. We are building a collaborative community arts center based upon a vision established by artists because they are often at the forefront of social movements. Artists not only have the ability to reveal injustice but can also envision the world as it could be, while guiding us towards our collective liberation. Training Description The LCAC proudly announced the launch of the first artist training program intended for Latinx artists in the Denver metropolitan area. We will offer a series of capacity-building workshops for a cohort of 10 interdisciplinary and intergenerational artists. We have three broad objectives for participating artists: 1) Developing a learning community among emerging and established artists 2) Using technology to spark collaboration while reaching new audiences 3) Supporting artists in securing other funding opportunities
Logistics Participating artists will each receive a $350 stipend. As part of the series of 10 workshops, participants will learn other technical skills, including, marketing, proposal writing, leveraging technology to build wider followings, among others. By focusing on building the capacity of artists, our aim is that they will be better equipped and more adaptable amid increasing uncertainty. Workshops will be held online via Zoom on a weekly basis until social distancing guidelines are relaxed. DUE: MAY 10, 2020 by 5pm Tentative Launch: Thursday, May 21, 2020 at 6pm-7:30pm and Weekly Thereafter
