The Artist in Residence program partners media artists with classrooms to facilitate student-led community investigations, which culminate in a collaborative media project. 

The project explores a complex community issue through the lens of classroom content and results in a collaborative media-making process.

Collaborative media projects start with big questions such as, “Why are people leaving Detroit?” “Why are we opening a new school?” “How do schools measure success?” or “Who gets to write history?”

Applications for the next artist residency will open in 2019.
