Programs / Art & Dialogue

Art & Dialogue is a national program designed to expand support for Artadia’s growing network of Awardees. Artadia currently supports over 300 Awardees working in a diverse array of disciplines in seven cities across the country. Developed through in-depth research of artists’ needs, Art & Dialogue bridges connections between visual artists, curators and diverse publics in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco through a series of studio visits, public programs, and online engagement.

Curators participating in the Art & Dialogue program:

– Conduct studio visits with 8 – 10 local Artadia Awardees
– Present a free public program hosted by a local cultural partner
– Provide a summary of their experience upon returning to their home institution

All Art & Dialogue programs are documented, anthologized on Artadia’s website, and publicized internationally.
