International Eye Los Angeles is pleased to announce its 2023 creative residencies in Caribbean carnival arts and multimedia presentation. The program, ‘LA Carnival Youth On Parade™’, teaches youth, 14-24 years old production and design skills to express their artistry and creativity. Partially funded by a California Arts Council grant, participants will receive stipends between $200 and $500 while developing transferable, project-based skills.
The residencies will take place on two campuses, one in MacArthur Park and one in Leimert Park. Each campus will have two cohorts, a Young Designer Cohort (age 14- 17) focusing on costume design and fabrication; and a Youth Leadership Cohort (age 18-24), focused on leadership and producing. Presented in collaboration with Los Angeles Carnival, participants will be integral collaborators in the LA Carnival and Festival of Arts scheduled for Sunday, June 25th in Leimert Park.
