AIRspace Award for QT&POC Artists – safehousearts.org
AIRspace was founded in1987 at the Jon Sims Center for the Arts, which was dedicated to supporting queer and trans artists of color and people living with HIV/AIDS. In 2007, after the close of the Sims Center, the program was transferred to SAFEhouse and operated as a no-frills residency for queer artists. In 2015, the program was put on hiatus for 2 years, while SAFEhouse shifted to a cooperative organizational model and secured a new facility in the Tenderloin’s newly created Transgender Cultural District. In 2017, SAFEhouse re-launched AIRspace as a hybrid fellowship/residency, actively seeking to invest in queer artists of color in areas of equity and arts leadership. The current members of the SAFEhouse cooperative have recognized that, while the programs have been open to all, the primary demographic of participants has been white or white-presenting artists and the few artists of color have reported a sense of isolation. It is not enough to say these programs are open to everyone and wonder why there are few folks of color participating in the organization. To that end, SAFEhouse is redesigned AIRspace in 2017 to place Queer and Trans artists of color in leadership positions.
