The Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (AHCMC) seeks a Consulting Artist to provide mentorship and training to a cohort of local artists-in-residence within three Montgomery County Regional Service Areas (RSA): Mid-County, Upcounty and East County. The Consulting Artist will provide guidance to the three artists as they undertake a year-long residency project with the goal of engaging community members within their RSA in a series of community conversations and gatherings through the lens of a creative practice.

As part of their role, the Consulting Artist will lead a training on community-engaged public art for Montgomery County-based artists; contribute to the selection of one artist-in-residence per Regional Service Area; provide mentorship and regularly meet with the artists-in-residence throughout the year-long project; and collaborate with AHCMC staff to support artists in navigating relationships with their RSA contacts and local communities. BIPOC and ALAANA Artists (African, Latinx, Asian, Arab, and Native American) are highly encouraged to apply.

The Consulting Artist will receive an all-inclusive artist fee of $28,500. This position is expected to be active from February 2024 – May 2025. This is expected to be a hybrid remote/in person position, with trainings and events taking place in person, and regular mentorship meetings occurring remotely or in person.
