The Social Practice Arts Research Center welcomes fellows in the development of new projects from artist researchers specialists and groups across disciplines. We help foster collaborative art projects, research, support and provide a forum and location for collaborative meetings. Each year there will be one international artist in residence at SPARC housed at UC Santa Cruz. The Artist in residence will collaborate on our theme-based initiative, conduct independent research and collaborate with the research center community.
