POWRPLNT’s residency program invites artists, collectives and organizations to work on a project with the support of our resources. Residents get a chance to use our facilities as meeting and work space to develop their initiatives as well as curate a special set of public programming supported by POWRPLNT’s staff and volunteers. Through this program, we hope to enrich our space with a collaborative spirit and enliven our off-hours with a community of makers.

BLACK TRANS MEDIA

Black Trans Media exists to shift and re-frame the value and worth of black trans and gender non conforming people by addressing the intersections of racism and transphobia. Black Trans Media is centered in the the power of creativity, media, arts, and storytelling to support leadership, organizing, and the development of narratives and works of resistance. Black Trans Media are working on their inaugural Community Media Makers Fellowship using POWRPLNT’s facilities and teach monthly video productions workshops.

Shardé Studio, an arts club launched by teaching artist Kiara Shardé, bridges wellness with creativity through writing and visual art workshops. During her time at POWRPLNT, Shardé Studio will be leading a series of youth zine workshops where teens will use self-reflection, writing, and digital collage making to express particular prompt. Through collective brainstorming and research, students will create their own individualized zines.
