Program seeks innovative ideas for social challenge response

DETROIT, June 29, 2020 (AP): Science Gallery Detroit is piloting a program designed to inspire responses to current social challenges impacting city residents.


The five-week, virtual Rapid Residency program is open to writers, artists, musicians, photographers, videographers, dancers, designers and others.

Science Gallery Detroit says the goal is to inspire innovation and creativity as events and opportunities for local artists have been postponed or canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, ensuing shutdowns and stay-home orders.

"Throughout history, artists have been instrumental in responding to social crises by developing responsive and thought-provoking works to address the challenges of their times,'' said Devon Akmon, Science Gallery Detroit director. ``It is our aim to serve as a platform to assist creatives, both financially and through project support, to cultivate the next wave of responsive work from within Detroit.''

Five people will be chosen and receive $1,000 stipends. Participants will be paired with mentors connected to Science Gallery Detroit and Michigan State University.

By the end of the program, awardees will be required to produce a publishable summary in written, audio or video format that responds to current social challenges. Finalized works are not mandatory, only comprehensive think pieces.

Applications will be accepted through July 22 with awardees announced on July 31.

Science Gallery Detroit was developed with Michigan State University and Science Gallery International. It opened in 2018.
