A Mini Residency for Group Centered Leadership in the Arts

Here's the Application:


Group Centered Leadership is an organizing model that encourages individual growth and empowerment as a way to affect positive social change. Small group art projects cultivate leadership development.

Women with children, head of households and emerging artist are a diverse representation of the public. By focusing on this portion of our population, it inherently creates an inclusive environment of intergenerational and cross cultural expression. Familial responsibilities, career support and limited access to a support network,create barriers in artists lives. We identify all participants of our programs as artists.

Artists will create a culminating project in response to their experience. Participants are asked to: Present their creative vision, participate in workshop schedule, and create a culminating art project.

“The most common way people give up their power, is by thinking they don’t have any.”
                                -Alice Walker
