The 2023 International Thematic Residency, Changing Climate, addresses the most critical issue of our time.

For the Changing Climate open call, Santa Fe Art Institute seeks to support artistic exploration, creative activism, and community art actions related to global warming that inspire individual transformation and inform collective action.

We seek artists and activists with proposed focus on research, artworks, and creative actions that:

  1. Connect human health with environmental and planetary health, and increase emotional resilience and adaptation to a quickly changing earth;
  2. Help to imagine social, cultural, economic, and technological futures that reduce or eliminate reliance on fossil fuels and are conjoined with human rights and the rights of all species;
  3. Support Indigenous, traditional, and local land stewardship and sovereignty in solidarity with human and non-human kin, as a means toward carbon capture and community building.

Starting with the 2023 Changing Climate International Residency, SFAI seeks to better support regional BIPOC artists through our Thematic Residency Program. Through the Regional BIPOC Award program, SFAI intends to award a $500 stipend to up to 28 regional BIPOC artists who are selected for a residency.

Application due April 10th at 11:59pm MT.
