Price Hill Will announces dates for its annual festival and opens applications for its nationally recognized Artists-in-Residence program.
Price Hill Will (PHW) presents the 5th annual Price Hill Creative Community Festival (PHCCF), held across 4 venues in East Price Hill July 24-25, 2020. PHCCF is a free, 2 day arts and neighborhood festival featuring over 60 performances, all ages programming, food, and more. Applications for PHCCF’s professional, paid Artists-in-Residence program are open until March 1, 2020. Information about the program and how to apply can be found at www.creativecommunityfestival.org/apply
PHCCF’s mission is to use collaborative arts as a tool to build more creative, connected, and equitable communities. The mission is embodied through its nationally recognized Artists-in-Residence program, in which professional artists co-create brand new work with the young musicians of MYCincinnati, PHW’s free youth orchestra program. This two week (July 13-25) intensive residency culminates in a featured presentation at the festival, alongside over 60 performances from Cincinnati’s diverse arts community. The Artists-in-Residence program of PHCCF is a paid residency for professional artists interested in working with youth and within Price Hill’s vibrant creative community. Previous Artists-in-Residence include cellist Tomeka Reid, theater artist Kaneza Schaal, puppetry company Paradox Teatro, composer Shara Nova, and local artists Siri Imani, Intermedio, and Elese Daniel.
PHCCF is anti-genre and strives to feature artists of diverse disciplines and identities, with a focus on Black, indigenous, and artists of color, LGBTQ+ artists, youth artists, artists with disabilities, and Price Hill based artists. Artists interested in performing at PHCCF can submit inquiries at www.creativecommunityfestival.org
“The Price Hill Creative Community Festival is a celebration. It is an irrefutable testament to the brilliant power of our neighborhood’s young people. It is a dream, made real through imagination, cooperation, and effort.”
-Eddy Kwon, Artistic Director at Price Hill Will
