Stephen Freeman: J Rêve Global Artist Residency Program

Stephen Freeman, a digital editor from Chicago went to Dakar, Senegal for a 6-week J Rêve International artist residency. It was his first international trip. During his artist residency, Stephen taught a digital editing class at Give1Project. We were very happy to award Stephen’s students with certificates of completion for participating in his month-long workshop. They’re already putting their editing skills to use in an array of projects.

J Rêve International’s Global Artist Residency Program makes an impact not only for the artists, but also the communities they visit. During their residency, each artist fulfills a ‘community engagement project’ designed to leave their legacy by either sharing their skills through workshops, or talents through public arts, performances, collaborations, and/or exhibitions.

We’re proud that J Rêve International’s artist residency program makes an impact beyond the residency and builds lifelong connections.
