Hope Community’s Transformational Creative Strategies Training (TRCSTR) is now accepting applications for this year’s cohort! The application period will close on April 29, 2024.

TRCSTR is a ~4-month cohort training program for community artists from end of May-September. The cohort of 8 participants will be supported by individual and collective mentorship of an 8-person advisory group and will work collectively to create public projects during the program. TRCSTR is led by artists and organizers, and centers on building personal and collective capacity for bringing transformational change through creative work. TRCSTR offers spaces to grow and practice skills, build connections, share food, questions, and ideas. We explore cultural and creative strategies that prioritize relationship, healing, curiosity, identity, and process. We welcome artists age 18+ of all mediums/ forms to apply. Our leadership team for 2024 consists of Hope Community Staff Olivia Levins Holden and Samie Johnson, and program facilitators Marcela Michelle and Rupa Shenoy-Thadhani. As a program we center LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC community members in all of our spaces.
