[bc], with LISC, is excited to launch the call for artists for Crossing the Street: Hillsdale, a new arts, archaeology and creative placemaking initiative in the historic Hillsdale community of southeast DC! This project will implement a temporary, creative intervention that connects residents to Hillsdale’s rich heritage as a post-Civil War freedman’s community, investigates current notions of home, and explores residents’ vision for community’s future.
Interested in applying? We're looking for DC-based artists who have a strong interest in social justice and are excited to work collaboratively with our project team, community partners and Hillsdale residents. Applicants are asked to share at least three relevant work samples with photos and a brief description. Their preliminary proposal should encourage collaboration between residents and community organizations, with a total project budget between $3,000-10,000 (including materials, artist time, and installation costs).
Resources on Hillsdale's history and archaeology to help inform your application can be found HERE.
A resident-led neighborhood tour and Q&A session will be held on Saturday, November 12th for applicants to familiarize themselves with Hillsdale and the application process. We highly recommend interested artists attend. Email email@example.com to RSVP.
