Projects must include a public engagement component. Examples of public engagement include the following: educational outreach programs, online engagement, workshops, artist talks or performances. Artists will have access to and are encouraged to engage with Glen Foerd's community partners, a process that will be facilitated by Glen Foerd’s staff. Each selected artists will receive an artist stipend up to $2500 and a material budget up to $1750. Additional support for printing, signage, lighting, photography, and marketing may be provided when applicable.
