*Artist in Residences – Teaching Artist*

The City of West Hollywood Arts Division is seeking proposals from
qualified teaching artists for a pilot interdisciplinary Artist in
Residences program to serve residents of subsidized housing projects and
other community members in West Hollywood. The program links both the
City’s commitment to creativity and its exemplary support of social
services for its residents. The program will increase the capacity of local
social service providers by expanding their services through artist-led

All artistic disciplines are welcomed including, but not limited to, visual
arts, media/new genre, performance, film/video, music/sound, choreography,
and writing. As a pilot program, we are open to various approaches to
engaging the participants – from group artmaking project experiences over a
period of time to sequential hands-on training in artistic practices. The
selected artist or artists will operate under a flat-rate contract for
services with the City to include a materials budget. The residency is
non-residential in that room and board will not be provided, however it is
anticipated that the artist will develop a “residency relationship” with
the organization and populations served.

The programs will likely take place at subsidized housing projects for
older and/or disabled and/or low income adults. Applicants should have a
strong interest in these populations and ideally previous experience
working with them.
