2023 Artist Family Residency

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

The Artist Family Residency invites Artist Parents and Artist Youth to be in process together for a one-two week process-based residency at Franconia. Coinciding with our Youth Installation Summer Camps, Artist Youth have the option to attend camp for free during the day or join the Artist Parent on-site for research. For artist parents, this is a self-directed residency. The Artist Family benefits both from the individual creative process and also through togetherness while exploring the connection between art and ecology. A culminating Parents & Community sharing of Summer Camp Works provides a joined capstone experience for the Artist Family.

ANNUAL THEME
Public Art IS Public Health

Franconia has continued to safely host artist residencies throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic, recognizing that many artists have lost personal and professional opportunities to thrive. Some have lost income and the potential to earn, while others have lost access to food, housing, and healthcare, impacting physical and mental health. Studies show that outdoor and public art can be especially beneficial for public health in five key areas: collective trauma, racism, mental health, social exclusion and isolation, and chronic disease. Access to public art is critical in supporting healthy communities. As such, for our 2023 season Franconia is asking ourselves, our artists, and our audiences how we can collectively move from individual solutions to collaborative acknowledgment and discussion of our bodily and mental well-being through the lens of public art.
