Sovereignty Residency 2024

The 2024 SFAI International Thematic Residency calls for an artistic and creative engagement responding to the multiple intersections of “sovereignty” as it pertains to the individual, jurisdictions, systems, and society as a whole.

“To be sovereign is to not be subject to another’s authority, another’s desires, or another’s gaze but rather to be the author of one’s own history.” – Simone Leigh

“Liberty without responsibility is not real liberty.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Sovereignty, the theme for the 2024 SFAI International Thematic Residency, calls for artistic and creative engagement at the multiple intersections of sovereignty as it pertains to the individual, jurisdictions, systems, and society as a whole.

SFAI supports the expression of differing perspectives regarding the role of the artist, creative practitioner, and culture bearer in shaping and being shaped by social and political conditions. As the US Supreme Court and other international political bodies in the world debate, restrict, and claim autonomy over the body, community, and the ability to self-govern, we seek proposals that articulate a response as a creative call to action and challenge imperial and colonial concepts of sovereignty that have laid claim to land and personhood.

RESIDENCY FEES

All fees are waived for the 2024 International Thematic Residency program.

Eligibility: Seeking creatives who are 25 and above whose proposals speak to jurisdiction and the ability to self-govern; explore various concepts around sovereignty and the interdependencies or divisions which change sovereign relationships

What you get: SFAI will provide $500 grants to all applicants who are selected for the 2024 Sovereignty thematic residency program who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).
