The program seeks qualified Respondents in the following areas:
The Atlanta BeltLine Scholar-in-Residence will produce a body of work to include a peer-reviewed academic white paper and a public presentation of their research findings. The Scholar will contribute to Atlanta BeltLine, Inc.’s (ABI’s) ongoing mission of equity, access, and inclusion by engaging in a thorough analysis of those topics as they relate to the city of Atlanta.
Specific to the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine annual exhibition, the Curator-in-Residence will work with the ABI Arts & Culture, Community Engagement, and Communications teams to engage and publicize the body of work for exhibition on the Atlanta BeltLine.
The Artist-in-Residence will develop a portfolio of work, culminating in a solo exhibition that will showcase the various sections of the Atlanta BeltLine corridor. ABI will retain the rights to at least one piece for its long-term foundational collection.
