This particular project helps address SHA’s commitment to fostering the social experience of place at Yesler, and to creating experiences that are place-based and community driven.

In this program, an artist, creative team, or non-profit group will conduct community-based research to understand the importance and potential for a neighborhood specific pathway at Yesler.

Audience focus will include original Yesler Terrace residents, new neighborhood residents, and community partners and SHA staff. The Consultant will work with SHA staff to identify the specific pathway for study, and recommendations will draw on existing community partnerships and engagement opportunities as well as new opportunities. The Consultant will work with SHA staff to implement pilot programs, as part of their research.

For more information about Yesler Terrace and SHA, please go to the following webpage: https://www.seattlehousing.org/about-us/redevelopment/redevelopment-of-yesler-terrace.

Scope of Work:
The Consultant shall be asked to perform the following tasks:
• Conduct research related to Yesler Terrace history and culture, including through resident interviews, meeting with SHA staff and Yesler Terrace community partners, and reviewing available media and materials related to Yesler Terrace and the Yesler Terrace redevelopment project.
• Experience community life by attending community meetings, programs, and celebrations as a participant or observer, when appropriate.
• Engage community in creative feedback opportunities, varying strategies to include a range of Yesler Terrace stakeholders, including original, new to the neighborhood, and surrounding area residents.
• Work closely with SHA staff to identify specific focus pathways and recommendations for community engagement, project work plan, and deliverables.
• Develop opportunities to create more social engagement around focus pathways, collaborating with existing or new cultural partners, when appropriate.
• Implement arts experiences and pathway activation activities as pilot programs, in consultation with SHA staff.
• Manage administrative aspects of the position, including budgets and schedule management, program proposals, regular programmatic meetings with coordinating SHA staff, and documenting and presenting project activities.

Description

Art is a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, artists can enlighten, educate and affect change around the world.

Since 2004, Embracing Our Differences has used the power of art and prose to promote diversity. The centerpiece of Embracing Our Differences is an outdoor juried art exhibit featuring 50 billboard size images (12.5 feet by 16 feet) created by local, national and international artists and writers. The display reflects the artists' interpretations of the theme "enriching lives through diversity." The exhibit is displayed annually at Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota. The 2019 exhibit hosted 218,000 visitors to Bayfront Park, bringing total attendance, since 2004, to more than 2,920,000.

Embracing Our Differences invites you to participate in creating a world where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. Become a part of this exciting change through your visual art submission to the annual Embracing Our Differences international juried competition. The statements accompanying each artwork are also vital and provide insight into our common humanity—as well as the differences that make us all unique.

The 2019 exhibit received 11,791 submissions representing 111 countries and 44 states including such distant lands as China, Greece, India, Israel, Japan, Romania, and Thailand. More than 65% of the submissions were made by students from 239 schools.

The winning artworks combine a deep understanding of both medium and message. Awards are given for "Best-in-Show Adult," "Best-in-Show Student," and "People's Choice" categories, with the last chosen by visitors to the exhibit. Adult winners each receive $1,000; students receive $1,000 with $500 to be directed to the student and $500 to their school’s art program, if they worked under the direction of an educator.

The 2020 exhibit will be displayed beginning January 18 in Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota.

How to Apply

All work should be submitted through the Embracing Our Differences website.

JUROR

Rebecca Hossack Gallery , London and New York

The Director of three galleries in central London and New York, Rebecca Hossack was born in Melbourne in 1955.

Following degrees in Law and in History of Art, Hossack studied at Christie's and at The Guggenheim in Venice. She set up her own gallery in Windmill Street, Fitzrovia, in March 1988. (She signed the lease only three days before the great stock-market crash on 'Black Monday').

Hossack's business, despte the economic climate, has not only survived, but thrived. In 2007 she moved the main London gallery to a three-storey building in 2a Conway Street, off Fitzroy Square, while keeping a second space at nearby 28 Charlotte Street.

From 1993-7, Hossack served as the Australian cultural attaché in London, initiating literary links between Australian and British writers and organising a series of exhibitions of Australian art in London. Her 'unworthy predecessor' Sir Les Patterson saluted her as 'one beaut sheila'. Hossack's portrait was included in Australians, an exhibition of photographs by Polly Borland at the National Portrait Gallery (with an accompanying book) celebrating 'the contributions of 55 famous Aussie "ex-pats".

The Artist in Residence (AiR) program, launched in July 2018, offers local artists an opportunity to develop, expand, and apply their skills to explore connections between STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) disciplines.

The mission of PacSci is to ignite curiosity in every child and fuel a passion for discovery, experimentation, and critical thinking in all of us. Our award-winning, interactive programs reach more than 1.1 million people each year – in their communities, classrooms, and on our campus.

While we often use scientific content as the platform for our mission, we recognize that multiple disciplines help us achieve it. For many members of the public, a cross-disciplinary approach not only enhances their experience, but also ignites their curiosity while increasing understanding of the natural connections between art and STEM disciplines. We believe that the processes of STEM and art share many similarities. Both rely on creativity, experimentation, dedication, and technical skills. One discipline may spark an interest in the other; one may help a person understand the other more deeply.

Program Overview

The AiR program provides a unique opportunity for artists to advance their creative practice while growing their skills related to communication, public engagement, and teaching. Throughout the residency, artists deepen their creative practice through STEM exploration, public engagement, and knowledge-sharing.

In addition to receiving support from PacSci staff, artists will have the opportunity to collaborate with scientists from our Science Communication Fellowship program, who are active academic or industry researchers or other science-based professionals in the Puget Sound region.

The Blues

Curated by Lisa Pressman and Kathy Cantwell

Blue is a primary color which lies between violet and green on the spectrum of light. “The Blues” can describe a state of mind. Feeling blue can refer to being melancholic and depressed. Conversely, blue is known to calm the mind and body. The color blue can slow human metabolism and can produce a meditative effect. In nature, blue is reflected in the sky, water, earth, and fire. It is associated with open spaces, intuition, imagination and inspiration.“The Blues describes music; such as rhythm and blues, bluegrass and jazz. Blue is associated with ideology like the democrats and blue states. “Blue has no dimension, it is beyond dimensions.” - Yves Klein
