Based on the deep traditions of the arts as a powerful means of community expression, Arts as Civic Engagement is a platform for students to become fully immersed in arts-based community engagement.

In its second year, the program will support three students in a Civic and Community Arts Residency at St. Louis region arts organizations to work with civic and community arts engagement projects. Students receive a stipend of $5000 for cost of living, housing, transportation, in lieu of summer earnings, or other direct costs accrued through the residency.
