For Artists

Jump Street’s core has always been about connecting artists to the community for educational and economic development. These connections are driven by a variety of things, including artists’ talents, communities’ needs, and combined solutions. Examples of artist opportunities are listed below.

Artists Residencies

The process is competitive. To be eligible to participate in the residencies artists must complete an application, which includes artistic history, teaching experience, letters of recommendation, sample submissions, child abuse and background check/FBI finger printing (legal requirement by the state of PA to work with children).
