Located in a rich urban context, PlatteForum’s dynamic, artist-centered residencies engage this community in the creation of new work where artists, youth, and the public collaborate. Preference will be given to artists whose work addresses the larger questions in our world today such as race, class, social and ecological issues. In doing this we hope to provoke dialogue that helps shape our public narratives and cultural conversations.
