We at Good Hart Artist Residency acknowledge the inequity that exists in our society, including within the arts. We feel we must take mindful steps to help undo the structural inequities caused by systemic racism. For these reasons we strive to extend our resources to people from communities that have been marginalized or are underrepresented in the arts. The Elevating Diverse Voices – Curated Residency program is a continuation of our efforts to bring a diversity of artists to Good Hart to nurture artists and to build relationships. We provide a space and time for artists to create and share their work with the community which builds awareness and understanding.
We have contracted with Juana Williams, a Detroit-based curator who specializes in elevating diverse voices in art, to select a Black Artist on an invitation basis for one of the 2021 residencies.
The arts are a powerful form of communication and a catalyst for transformation. Please consider making a donation to our gofundme campaign to help cover the program costs.
