GREENSBORO, NC (March 31, 2021) – Creative Greensboro is proud to announce the Neighborhood Arts: Residency Program, a partner initiative of the recently announced Neighborhood Arts: Mural Program. This program selects Greensboro-based artists or nonprofit arts organizations for a contracted six-month visual arts residency that culminates in a wall installation in selected neighborhoods. Interested artists or organizations must submit a proposal on-line until April 30th, 5 p.m. The residencies run from June 1st to November 30th.

Select artist or organization will receive up to $ 22,500 in support of reimbursement-based residency-related costs, free use of city-owned space, and free wall installation approval.
“The Neighborhood Arts: Residency program offers leaders in our creative community the opportunity to work with neighborhoods on arts programs that are informed by the people and the location of the residency,” said Ryan Deal, chief creative economy officer of Greensboro. “We are particularly excited to support the development of community-based wall projects that will add character to some of Greensboro’s historically richest neighborhoods.”
This program will initially be implemented in three neighborhoods identified for reinvestment in the Housing GSO Plan, Dudley Heights, Glenwood, and Königswald. The program is funded by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Greensboro City. Additional support is provided by the Greensboro Parks and Recreation, Libraries and Museums, and Transportation departments.
