The Wing Luke Museum (WLM) and International Community Health Services (ICHS) are seeking an artist to produce workshops, activities, and/or programs that align with the theme of Arts and Culture as Apothecary (ACA). This residency will create safe and nurturing spaces for dialogue, reflection, wellness, and joy for intergenerational audiences of 20-40 participants, with a focus on senior residents at the ICHS Legacy House. Through working and engaging with participants, the artist will create art with participants that addresses trauma and stigma associated with behavioral health, normalizes receiving help, and gives participants a sense of belonging and community. The art will be featured as an exhibition in ICHS clinics, with possible plans of traveling.


ACA is an initiative of the Wing Luke Museum. ACA recognizes and elevates the role of arts and culture within Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities to heal, protect, and restore, impacting mental and physical health, not only at the individual level, but also at the community and systems levels. The ACA program will use Museum resources through partnerships and collaborations like this artist residency to address community needs as well as health and well-being in our diverse neighborhood and community.



Priority will be given to applications submitted by February 29, 2024, 4PM PST, otherwise open until filled.
