Here We Live
The Boys and Girls Club of Carbondale (BGCC) and Carbondale Community Arts (CCA) are seeking artistic workshop proposals that develop community pride and enhance a positive sense of place for the residential neighborhoods that make up Carbondale’s total community. Workshops will take place in select Carbondale locations between October 2015 and April 2016 as part of “Here We Live,” a joint program of BGCC and CCA that is being undertaken with major support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Proposed workshops may utilize any media (or combination thereof) and should each be designed to involve 15-20 community participants who will be guided to express their individual and collective view of community (Here We Live) through creative pursuits.
Workshop activities may take place in 1-5 sessions and should result in a work product (mural, sculpture, performance, film, dance, etc.) representing that shared vision. These works will be displayed/performed/shared at the “Here We Live” community festival to take place on the Boys and Girls Club campus on April 30, 2016.
For more information and the full proposal visit the CCA website: www.carbondalearts.org/grant-opportunities/here-we-live
