Radical Heart


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
