Program seeks innovative ideas for social challenge response
June 29, 2020
DETROIT — 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. Five people will be chosen and receive $1,000 stipends. 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.
