Established in 2019, ZAIR's mission is to build community through dynamic art & ideas. With a focus on providing artists working in community contexts with stable housing, a supportive work environment, and professional resources to help advance their artistic careers, we strive to build a vibrant and engaged community with and for Zócalo residents through art and creative placemaking. Each year a single one-year and two six-month residencies are available for artists interested in developing or deepening a community-engaged practice. Artists chosen by an expert panel of local curators will be granted free housing with paid utilities, exhibition space, a $250 monthly materials stipend, and the freedom to create and display site-specific installations designed to engage Zócalo’s residents and the greater Spring Branch public community.
Zócalo’s inaugural Artist-in-Residence program is offering three residencies on the beautiful campus of Zócalo Apartments located in the emerging Spring Branch area of Houston, Texas.
