Intersection AIR

Intersection for the Arts artist in residence program. Applications for Intersection AIR are currently closed.

We’re dedicated to helping artists experiment and grow. That’s why we created Intersection AIR, an artist in residence program that offers opportunities for Intersection members to develop projects in a variety of public settings. All artist residencies offer artists financial support, value artist autonomy and growth, and support the intersection of art making and community engagement.
