Creative and Cultural Industries: Unlocking the EU-US Potential
Chapman University's Wilkinson College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (WCAHSS) in conjunction with the European Union (EU) is launching a two-year initiative to promote awareness of European Creative and Cultural Industries (CCI) through a series of residency programs and conferences. Focused residencies will be open to European-based contemporary visual artists, culture professionals, CCI policy makers and strategists to encourage innovation in education and foster cross-pollination of artistic ideas and practices between EU and US CCI professionals.
Through this residency, Chapman's campus in Orange, California, USA, will become a physical connection point for visual investigations of European and American public art vocabularies. The Artist in Residence will use their own European background to engage with the community, history, and geography of Orange.
