Artist in Residence

The AACC Artist in Residence Program provides an opportunity for artists, academicians, curators and others to apply their discipline in a time and space away from their usual environment and obligations.

Currently, the AACC supports Mojos’ Pen, a student-run creative writing organization, by acting as its sponsor, promoting its events, and hosting its gatherings.

Mojos’ Pen (a.k.a. the medicinal pen or voice);  in search of a place to critique and cope with the social and political implications of race revolts across the country, a group of UIC students created Mojos’ Pen in the ‘90s as a safe and supportive space where their critiques could be shared while also improving their creative writing.
