Macon Arts Alliance accepting applications for Mill Hill artists

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Macon Arts Alliance is accepting artist applications for the Mill Hill: East Macon Arts Village project.

The Macon Arts Alliance will turn worn down houses into living spaces for artists and an old recreation center into an arts center in the middle of the neighborhood. The goal is to have artists do projects in the community and bring life back to the area. Macon Arts Alliance has put together a board that will select the first two artists. 

“The ideal candidate will be an artist who does socially engaged art. That means they make art collaboratively with residents and neighbors in the community. The work is about the process and bringing people together as much as about the creation of objects,” explained Jonathan Harwell-Dye from the Macon Arts Alliance. 

There’s a $25 dollar application fee, but once the artist is selected the residency program is free. The deadline for applications is December 31, 2015. Macon Arts Alliance hopes to have people living in the East Macon Arts Village next Spring. For more information about the application click here
