How can artists help solve complex social and political problems? One model that's growing in popularity is to place artists in residence in government agencies. This webinar brings together experts who have looked at this model from different perspectives—government, nonprofits, academics, and artists—to discuss the possibilities and challenges of artist residencies in local government. It will also be an opportunity for cross-sector networking, a collaborative and generative space to think about different approaches for artist residencies for the social good.
