Flint and Steel are six week residencies designed to allow artists to join forces with academic partners. Artists and Tulane University faculty members will be united to inspire each other in the development of new work, to excite the public, and to ignite social change. Addressing the artists' desire to be more effective and have longer lasting impact with their outreach, these collaborations will empower the artistic practice with scholarship, student manpower and academic resources from Tulane. We ask artists to describe in detail how the opportunity will affect their work, to identify potential departmental partners, to propose a public component to their residency and to suggest ways in which they will engage with the local community.
A full description including all important dates and the application for our Flint and Steel residencies can be found here (pdf) or here (MS Word). Letters of Interest (LOI) due April 13, 2015.

These residencies are supported in part by the Max and Victoria Dreyfus Foundation, New Orleans Theater Association and the Tulane/Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental Research.
