PlatteForum, as an artist community, supports the creation and presentation of new art and ideas by contemporary artists. By supporting working artists, PlatteForum generates dialogue in the larger community about the role of the artist in society. Located in a rich urban context, PlatteForum’s dynamic, artist-centered residences are built upon the notion of engaging the broader community in the creation of new work, where artists, youth, and the public collaborate. Each resident artist becomes a catalyst for innovative and expanded thinking about what art is and can be.

Residencies at PlatteForum are competitive with over 100 applications and only four to five slots awarded each year. Each residency gives the artist the time, space and support to extend their work and share their ideas with the public. Artistic excellence, innovative ideas for engagement and collaboration with the public, and a diversity of ideas, genres, and methodologies are paramount in selecting artists for only four to five available slots in the Artist Residency program each season. Residencies are typically 6-8 weeks in duration. Residency timeslots follow the approximate schedule:
Residency A: Sept-Oct 2020
Residency B: Jan-March 2021
Residency C: March-May 2021
Residency D: June-July 2021
Residency E: June/July 2021

The Artist Residency program is open to artists in all genres and disciplines. Applications from established professional artists, emerging artists, and graduate students are welcome. We encourage local, national, and international artists to apply. Artistic excellence, merit, and creative ways for interacting with the public as articulated in the application are important criteria in the selection process. Applicants must be able to speak and understand English. There is a three-year waiting period for former residents (for example, an Artist Resident from the 2018-19 season is not eligible to apply until the 2021-22 season).

PlatteForum is a member of the Alliance of Artist Communities, an international organization that advances creativity. Community connections nurtured by collaborations and partnerships with organizations, schools, and individuals that extend the artist’s aesthetic are integral to each residency. The PlatteForum approach — teaming creative residents with youth and the community — makes a valuable contribution to our city’s cultural discourse, fosters personal growth for the artist, and positively impacts the lives of participating individuals. PlatteForum’s uniqueness gives artists, youth, and community members opportunities that they might not find elsewhere.
