Resident Residency

McColl Center for Art + Innovation’s Resident Residency is an artist residency for five Charlotte-based artists who are addressing themes impacting their communities through social practice art. The intent of this residency is to build the creative practices, leadership, and power of artists in Charlotte by providing them with resources, time, and money to do so.

During the prototype of this project, each of the following artists is awarded a six-week residency at McColl Center during the fall of 2019. Each artist Charlotte-based artist is building power in their community.
