Resident Residency, an artist residency program begun in January 2014, invited artists to participate in their respective Portland, Oregon, neighborhood association meetings as a context for developing participatory public artworks. Artists worked as organizers, researchers, activists and fellow neighbors to create projects that were engaging, playful, and thought provoking in their own communities.
