Creative reusers alert! The El Cerrito Arts & Culture Commission proudly announces the El Cerrito Creative ReUse (ECCRU) Artist Residency program!
The ECCRU Artist Residency will support local artists who work with recycled materials, and encourages environmental stewardship by means of resource conservation, recycling and upcycling through art that inspires people to think about sustainability and consumption.
The Residency will provide the selected ECCRU Artist with access to materials at the City’s Recycling + Environmental Resource Center for use in artistic projects, the opportunity to host an exhibit at the end of the residency, and more! The Artist will create artwork in their own workspace, but the Residency will provide a storage bin at the Center for salvaged materials.
The selected ECCRU Artist must live in Contra Costa or Alameda County, and be over 18 years old. Request a copy of the Call to Artists and sign up for announcements about the ECCRU Artist Residency and other ACC programs and events at http://el-cerrito.org/ECCRU
