City of Santa Fe Arts and Culture Department
Culture Connects Coalition Artist Relief Fund
The City of Santa Fe recognizes the important role that artists and creatives have played in our culture and our economy. That’s why it is with great pleasure that the City Arts and Culture Department announces its partnership with Lannan Foundation in the creation of the Culture Connects Coalition Artist Relief Fund. \
The Culture Connects Coalition fund’s first initiative is a response to the current COVID-19 public health pandemic and the subsequent suspension of events in our community. The impact of these suspensions will have a ripple effect throughout our artistic community, adversely impacting artists, their families and the greater community. Following the City of Boston’s lead, awards from $500-$1,000 will be made to artists-in-need through a less-formalized grant process through the Culture Connects lens of equity, inclusion and access. Depending on funding levels and the number of requests, priority will be given to artists from communities that have been historically and systemically economically disadvantaged. Our goal is to support as many Santa Fe artists as possible.
As a result of the overwhelming response from Santa Fe artists, the Arts and Culture Department has closed Round One of the Artist Relief Fund Grant program. In just TWO days over 150 artists have responded and, to that end, we will start working on reviewing the applications in the following week with a goal of distributing funds within an anticipated 30 days. Depending upon the results of Phase One and the amount of total funding available for distribution, we anticipate re-opening the Fund for a second phase in May. Selected artists from Phase One will not be eligible to apply for Phase Two, however artists who were not selected are encouraged to re-apply when the application goes live again.

Since its inception, the Santa Fe Artists Medical Fund has assisted many artists during times of medical needs through grants administered by the Santa Fe Community Foundation to provide for those artists who cannot afford necessary treatment. If you know of any artists who can benefit from our services, please refer them to our website to apply for funds. The link on our website makes applying for funds easy and straightforward.
Also, we are beginning an annual fund drive. If you are able, we encourage you to donate. There is a link on our website to ease the process of donation.
Funds are raised through an exhibition and sale of works donated by Santa Fe Artists. If you know new artists in Santa Fe, or, know artists who have not been included in previous shows, or, know artists who are not receiving our emails, please look for the pop-up sign on our website so that they can be added to our artist database.

The Jam Stand: sound/music residency
The Jam Stand is a sound/music residency based along the Rio Grande valley south of Albuquerque. Every year, participants are chosen to come out for up to two weeks and work independently towards personal growth and development in the Jam Stand studio. This is time for artists to explore, strengthen and expand skill sets and to take some time to get back to the roots of their audiological expression. We hope that this time helps sound artists and musicians to move toward their goals or re-orient. We believe that giving artists time an space to work is one of the most valuable gifts and hope to continue sharing these resources. Each resident is filmed during their stay and a video produced looking behind the scenes at their process and some of the sounds they made while at the Jam Stand.

Creative Residencies and Retreats
Resolana Farms has been a stopping-place for journeyers, artists, writers, and explorers for hundreds of years. This gem of a ranchito is a watering hole, both physically and metaphorically, providing nourishment and creative inspiration to many who pass through or stop to rest a while. The signature red cliffs of Resolana Farms soften into grama grass barrancas, then drop down onto the Poleo Creek and the acequia-fed fields to the south. The elements of this landscape are in constant dialogue, a kinetic dance of light and shadow, moisture and drought, of time, entropy, and human energy through the centuries.
To give individual artists, creative, and spiritual practitioners the opportunity to unplug and recharge in the quiet magic of our northern New Mexico ranch.
To encourage inspiration and new thinking gained from quiet, unscripted time on the land.
To facilitate the completion of projects or catalyze new ones through intentional pause and time alone to write, read, create, walk, meditate, reflect, and restore.
Program Details: Residencies vary in length. The average stay is four nights. The minimum stay is two nights, and the maximum stay is one week.
Resident enjoys one-bedroom historic private home, and is responsible for bringing his or her own food and cooking all meals during the residency.

Railyard Art Project
Community Artists, Designers and Innovators:
The Railyard Art Committee (RAC) invites both individuals and creative teams to propose visual and performing art projects that are vital, lively and experimental for temporary installation within the Railyard Park + Plaza.
RAC will select thoughtful, playful art in the context of social, cultural expression and environmental sustainability. Such issues may include – but are not limited – cultural heritage, site history, ecological restoration, and the building of a sustainable future. Most importantly, projects should emphasize community enjoyment, engagement and participation.
The Railyard Park + Plaza was designed as a Cohesive Urban Art Environment and is a work of art in itself. RAC encourages a continuation of the collaborative spirit that remains at it’s core. Joint efforts across disciplines — artists, designers, scientists, historians, hydrologists, and many more — will be welcomed interactions with the original design.
All applications for installations, artworks and performances of a temporary nature that comply with the usage policies of the Railyard Park + Plaza are welcome. A limited number of honoraria, up to $500, are available in 2014 for exemplary projects. Ongoing.
