CREATING SPACE INCUBATOR

A new residency for artist-organizers whose visions are pushing the field beyond talking about equity, to organizing to achieve it. A marriage of BAX’s long-standing artist residency programs and Artistic Director Paloma McGregor’s decades-long artistic and organizing practices, the Creating Space Incubator will put institutional resources in the service of three artist-led initiatives that challenge racism and other oppressive structures in the arts and beyond by developing creative approaches to collaboration and community building.

In this pilot year, these communities will receive 100 hours of space, a $1,000 budget, strategic support from the Artistic Director and BAX staff, and public and private platforms in which to process and share their visions. In addition, the lead artists in this cohort will serve as paid members of the Artistic Director’s new Artist Advisory Council.
