Are you a socially-minded artist ready to make a difference in your community? Are you passionate about the needs and future of Northwest Arkansas? Are you searching for a paid opportunity to engage the public and spark real relationships?

Then welcome aboard—you’re in the right place.

We are looking for a socially engaged artist to join the second year of our Arts and Social Impact Accelerator Program (ASAP) partnership with Ozark Regional Transit Authority (ORT). This paid, contracted opportunity is for artists or creative community organizers who are residents of Northwest Arkansas and are available throughout 2022 to help address social issues by planning and implementing community art engagements and practices. The engagements to be developed include listening sessions and community events that will culminate in a community-led public transportation festival.
