PlatteForum’s Artist Residency program is one of the first of its kind in Denver, Colorado. Our competitive, international program provides artists the time, space and support to create new work, explore new mediums and share their work with the community. Each resident artist’s practice and work created during their residency must address a social justice issue and may be created through any creative discipline. Resident artists are given full access to PlatteForum’s studio space during their residency. In return they are required to lead workshops with PlatteForum’s ArtLab high school interns and other youth-serving groups, culminating in exhibitions and/or performances in collaboration with youth.
