Job description

The Artist in Residence program at Unity Church-Unitarian (aka Unity) seeks to cultivate generative relationships between the church and creatives across diverse art forms, to undertake a period of focused work that amplifies the congregation’s vision of becoming a multicultural, antiracist Beloved Community. Through the exchange between the artist(s) and church community, presenting and sharing both the creative work and process, the program seeks to activate our imagination, foster relationships among and beyond our church walls, inspire spiritual and emotional growth, and open the church community to larger dimensions in the work of making cultural change.

The Artist in Residence program at Unity invites Twin Cities artists across disciplines (media arts, dance, music, literature, theater, performance, visual arts, or other) to apply for a four to six-month residency in which the artist will create new artistic work and engage the church community with meaningful arts experiences to culminate in a public presentation of new work.

Qualifications or requirements

Applicants must be 18 years of age or older, and may not be enrolled in a full time degree program. Applicants must be residents of the Twin Cities 7-County Metro Area.

Applicants may be at any stage in their career, but must be able to demonstrate achievement in their artistic field and have a history of public presentation or community contribution.

See unityunitarian.org/artist-in-residence for more information.

How to apply

Applicants will submit the Application Form, Work Samples, Work Sample Information Sheet, Artist Statement, Project Proposal (750 words), and Project Budget (income & expenses) via email to the Artist in Residence Team at Unity (artistinresidence@unityunitarian.org).
