ART: OPTIMISM Project 2017 Artist-in-Residence Program is centering around the city of NEWBURGH & New-York & carried out with a combination of artist-in-residence programs and programs such as workshops for local community. Examining the meaning of artistic activities in a region, ART: OPTIMISM program attempts to elicit individual potential creativity through its artistic projects and believes that this attempt will invigorate the region. The goal of our initiatives is to support multi-national and Ukrainian artists specializing in mixed media, conceptual and collaborative art projects that promote Ukrainian culture, cross–cultural communication and mutual understanding. We will produce special programs that foster creative exploration & provide space and tools to share contacts, ideas, and experiences through art labs meetings, workshops and networking, curatorial projects, public art initiatives, art installations, performances, creative writing programs & educational programs.
