CIAC serves as the administrative office for freeDimensional's international network of artist residency initiatives. Located at the Magnolia Tree Earth Center, it partners with its gallery to introduce the local community to international artists in residence. CIAC provides artists, activists, and citizen journalists with residential and/or studio space for two to four-month periods; creates interaction with community youth through our Syndicate 19 program; and organizes programs with city-wide outlets that enable both artists and youth to promote their work and discuss their experiences, fostering awareness of human rights issues in the community.
In addition to local youth and its international guests, CIAC provides services to local artists focusing on global issues, international artists living locally, and community-based arts groups in need of project incubation space. These services include:
- Participation in curatorial opportunities, group shows, and open studios at the George Washington Carver gallery and through partnerships with other citywide artistic venues
- Use of the Hattie Carthan Community Garden for exhibitions/events, outdoor workspace, and relaxation
- Technical assistance to artists and organizations for project implementation
- Fiscal Sponsorship
