"The arts and culture industry is an economically sound investment. It attracts audiences, spurs business development, supports jobs, generates government revenue, and is the cornerstone of tourism. Locally...the arts mean business." - Americans for the Arts, Arts & Economic Prosperity IV
So I asked, “What if there was an intermediary connecting and cultivating deeper relationships between local artists and local organizations based on values and need?”
Art in Praxis has answered! It's time to re-envision what it means to be an Artist in Residence.
The Match is a vehicle for local artists and social good organizations to cultivate longer-term, strategic relationships that further their reach and stimulate the creative economy.
I am so excited. This is big. Learn more about the inaugural event here. Stay tuned for #creativematch updates and posts.
