Artist teams were selected to lead community residencies at two partner sites; one a combined residency at Mesa Urban Garden and Mesa Artspace Lofts, and the other at CARE Partnership. In both residencies, artist teams will lead a series of artmaking workshops and will facilitate multiple neighborhood walks where residents will identify areas that need improvement--where creative intervention might be used to enhance aesthetics, safety, walkability, or gathering spaces, or to address other needs/opportunities identified by the residents.

The residencies will culminate in a community celebration on Saturday, April 13, 10 AM – 2 PM at Mesa Artspace lifts. The community celebration will celebrate the ideas and artwork generated by participants. During this celebration, an RFP will be issued that invites proposals for prototype ideas for the sites identified as needing intervention.
