Based in Detroit, Radical Heart&rsquos residency program supports
The creation of new work and the expansion of existing work
Mindfulness and self-reflection
Healing, self-care, and wellness
Connections and collaboration between visiting artists and Detroit(ers).
The unique approach of this residency program is its holistic support of each artist, and its commitment to supporting and promoting those whose work and practices relate to and further specific ideas. Residencies are tailored to each artist&rsquos current and desired creative discipline, career goals, relationships, health, and joy, and hold these factors as foundational, interdependent, synergistic, and critical to every individual&rsquos overall well-being.
The program invites artists, activists, wellness practitioners, and others whose work is grounded in:
-Social Change / Social Progress
-Social Justice & Equity
-Spirituality (Broadly Defined) & Mindfulness
-Individual & Community Healing & Self-Care
-Ecology / Natural Systems
Operating at the intersection of art, activism and well-being, Radical Heart seeks to inspire, create, and share new ways of living, working, and being – individually and collectively – in order to positively transform the world. Grounded in community power, self-representation, abundance, radical acceptance, and revolutionary love, Radical Heart is dedicated to supporting artists, activists, organizers, healers, spiritual leaders, and others who are committed to social justice and liberation.
Founded in 2017, Radical Heart&rsquos initial programs include: 1) residencies to support individual or collaborative projects, and 2) restorative retreats for individuals or small groups. Future programs will include exhibitions, events, workshops, skillshares, conferences, and other convenings. All programs are designed to uplift radical, visionary, transformative, creative ideas, experiments, projects, reports, individuals, organizations, and systems.
