RFP | “UNTWISTED: Inside Out In”


Side Street Projects (SSP) is requesting proposals for our upcoming 2023-24 Artist Residencies titled UNTWISTED: Inside Out In. These residencies are offered to two (2) artists or collectives to develop a community-engaged art project that creates peaceful spaces for intergenerational connection and the conditions for collective healing, with a Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) approach. The residency will take place between November 2023 and June 2024 based on the availability of applicants.

What is the mission of this residency?

The UNTWISTED: Inside Out In residencies are available for artists interested in developing socially engaged projects in connection to the communities SSP serves. Projects should aim to honor process over product and make space for regeneration, deep listening, and peer-to-peer mentorship. This residency UNTWISTED: Inside Out In could serve as an incubation space for a larger project, as some projects continue beyond the scope of the residency.

This project is funded by the Pasadena Community Foundation and is intended to serve folks who reside in or have a meaningful connection to the City of Pasadena and Altadena. SSP maintains a range of community partners who can potentially inform and collaborate with the projects. We honor our relationships and partners as precious resources. We recognize that resource abundance is also connected to the strength and care of our relationships.
