ASC is joining the Kresge Foundation in partnership with EmcArts to bring together a group of practicing artists for a program on artists as complex community change agents. EmcArts is a national service organization that works with individuals, organizations, and communities as they tackle their most complex challenges. The gatherings will work to advance local artists as leaders of systems change in the community and to foster local support networks for artists in this and related work.

ASC is offering each participating artist an honorarium of $250 per workshop. For a comprehensive overview of the program and an application, please follow this link to the application. Applications should be sent to Liz Dreyer, EmcArts at
