Flint Public Art Project
Through its Stone Street Coop & Residency, Flint Public Art Project (FPAP) supports students, artists, designers, community leaders and teachers with free or affordable housing in order to allow residents time and space to pursue their crafts and to produce artistic projects in Flint.
The Stone Street Coop & Residency offers both: short duration 30-90-day residencies for visiting artists and longer-term month-to-month residencies for local artists. In addition to housing, residents get the chance to work with artists, architects, planners, journalists, activists, and teachers from Flint and around the country and the world who are rethinking and reinventing the way we share resources, activate abandoned spaces, strengthen neighborhoods, and make art. All residents will produce work that responds to or extends the Flint Public Art Project mission to activate vacant spaces, connect people and places, amplify the local culture, and transform the identity of the city.
Flint Public Art Project organizes public events, workshops and temporary installations to inspire residents to reimagine the city, reclaim vacant and underutilized buildings and lots, and use innovative tools to steer Flint’s long-range planning.
