Call out for community-focused artists!
ACAF is excited to announce a renewed community focus for our arts residency program. We are calling for artists with a specific interest in working with communities to contribute to ACAF’s very successful ARTS CAN DO program. ARTS CAN DO is an art based education project which aims to help disadvantaged children reach their full potential by developing life skills and confidence through involvement in art.
We are seeking resident artists who are keen to apply their creativity and skills to explore techniques to engage and work with children with special needs. Resident artists will have the opportunity to stay and work at ACAF studio’s in Song Jiang, contribute to the ARTS CAN DO program through conducting creative workshops well as explore rural community life through visiting ACAF’s other ARTS CAN DO location at Longlin Primary School, Xishuangbanna, Yunnan.
ACAF will be considering applications from individuals, groups of artists and arts managers for our 2017 Autumn and 2018 Spring intake.

A brief statement regarding your experience and/or interest in community based arts initiatives (200- 500 words)
