Engaging Artists is a residency and professional development program for artists seeking to develop their socially-engaged practice through partnerships with community organizations. In 2016, the cohort was focusing on issues of housing inequality in New York City. Each artist was working as an Artist-in-Residence and volunteer with organizations dedicated to housing advocacy, homeless services, and/or anti-displacement efforts in their respective communities.
