  • The University will host three residency programs, each three weeks in duration from artists and/or consultants/policy strategists from the EU. Artists will be based at Chapman University and be supported to work with Creative Sidecommunity bodies in Southern California. The goal is to promote awareness of European CCI projects in the visual field, encourage innovation in education, and foster cross-pollination of artistic ideas and practices between EU and US CCI professionals, The program will host visual artists, culture professionals, CCI policy makers and strategists and will be invited to access Chapman University’s academic resources and student body to launch a dialogue about global citizenship expressed within creative communities.  The aim of the program is to present EU creative cultural endeavors outside of the typical academic context, and to explore connections and comparisons to issues of identity, social inclusion, and diversity as seen within the EU and the U.S. The residency is open to professional artists, craftspersons, conservators, art historians, museum professionals, and those working in the area of CCI policy development and implementation.
