Creative Greensboro has launched Creative Allies, a new municipal residency program to bring an artistic lens to the work of City departments. This program will offer two, one-year artist residences with the Human Rights and Housing and Neighborhood Development departments, and the artists in residence will work with community members in either Dudley Heights or Kings Forest. Artists who are interested in applying for Creative Allies can learn more about the program and apply by February 14.

Creative Allies is part of Neighborhood Arts, which focuses on the five reinvestment neighborhoods of the Housing GSO plan. Artists will help with planning, community engagement and creative problem-solving in partnership with the City departments. The goal of Creative Allies is to amplify the voices of residents and help better align the work of City with community histories and needs.

Artists in residence will have a two-month research phase and a 10-month project implementation phase, during which they can work up to 18 hours per week at $35 per hour. Artists of any discipline who are Guilford County residents or leaders of Greensboro-based non-profits are eligible to apply.

Selected Artists in Residence will receive:

$35 per hour for 15 - 18 hours a week for a one-year artist residency
$500 materials budget for the first 2 months of the residency (research phase)
$1,000 materials budget for the 10-month period after the research phase (project implementation phase)
A working partner from the city department to help support their residency work
No-cost access to space in select public facilities, as available, for residency activities (reservations made through Creative Greensboro)
