3AP DCASE Artist
3AP is expanding to serve even more Chicago artists. In addition to past 3Arts awardees and residency fellows, 3AP is now open to individual artists who have received grants from the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events’ (DCASE) Cultural Grants Program.
The most recent DCASE individual artist grant recipients who also fit the mission of 3Arts receive invitations to participate in 3AP on a first-come first-served basis during the year following the receipt of their grant.
