About the Residency
FPAP acquired the formerly abandoned house at 605 Stone Street in the summer of 2012 from the Genesee County Land Bank. Staff, volunteers, and contractors rehabbed the building in a matter of months, and Stone Street officially opened its doors in October 2012 as housing for FPAP staff and visiting artists and designers. Since then, more than two dozen guests have stayed at Stone Street for up to a week while developing and offering public programs throughout Flint.
FPAP will offer both short duration 90-day residencies for visiting artists, and longer-term month-by-month residencies for local artists.
In addition to housing, residents get the chance to work with artists, architects, planners, journalists, activists, teachers from Flint and around the country who are rethinking and reinventing the way we share resources, activate abandoned spaces, strengthen neighborhoods, and make art. All residents will produce work that responds to or extends the Flint Public Art Project mission.
