You could be Allerton’s next Naturalist- or Artist-in-Residence

The University of Illinois’ Allerton Park is currently seeking applications for Spring 2022 for a Naturalist- and an Artist-in Residence. From the posting on the Allerton website:

[The] residency highlights and celebrates the arts and study of nature within Black and Latinx communities. By focusing on artistic and environmental innovation within the Black and Latinx communities, Allerton intends to connect more deeply with visitors, guests and stakeholders within these communities. This program is one of many steps toward deepening and growing the connection between Allerton and the whole community it serves.

The parameters of what constitutes a naturalist and an artist are pretty wide open, so if your work addresses the intersection of environmental studies and/or humanities and Black and Latinx identity and community, you should consider applying. 

Details for applying are available on the Allerton website. Applications are due October 4th.
