Call for Artists: DrawBridge’s Community Artist Program

Connect local artists with youth in shelters, affordable housing facilities, & community centers

* Deadline to Apply: December 31, 2022

DrawBridge’s new Community Artist Program will connect local artists with youth in shelters, affordable housing facilities, and community centers throughout the region. The program will launch in 2023 with generous support from state and national funding agencies.

Five Bay Area artists will be selected to receive an honorarium of $1,000 each to develop art experiences and site-specific works with children ages 5-18 in Alameda, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Sonoma counties.

Artists will be selected by DrawBridge’s Community Engagement Committee and work closely with program staff to develop community-focused art activities for children throughout the Bay Area. The program offers artists unique opportunities for authentic dialogue, mentorship, and promotion of their work. DrawBridge will provide all materials and promote participating artists through marketing, press releases, social media, and our website. Established and emerging Bay Area artists are encouraged to apply.
