What does a year in CAC look like?
CAC Members are matched with non-profit community organizations, museums, and schools around Baltimore City to serve year-long community arts residencies. The work of CAC member artists provides youth and adults the benefits of after-school and community-based arts experiences, and strengthens neighborhoods through community art projects. CAC Members will facilitate arts classes & workshops, develop social justice-based curricula, assist in the evaluation of programs, and gain valuable professional experience in the community arts and non-profit fields. Members may also have the opportunity to develop special projects, plan community events, and support their partner organizations in a myriad of ways.
The CAC program is a great fit for someone who would like to: 1) gain more hands-on experience and professional development for teaching art to youth and adults in community settings, 2) become connected with a network of community-driven arts organizations in Baltimore, 3) use their creative expertise to contribute to impactful community-based work in Baltimore City.
