Exhibited Document Flags


Akron Soul Train's main objective is to provide artists with residencies that offer the necessary resources for creative expression. These residencies typically span one month, although they can be extended if an artist requires more time. A crucial aspect of each residency is community engagement, which takes the form of workshops, project participation, panel discussions, or demonstrations. Residencies are open to artists from diverse creative disciplines, including visual arts, music, literary arts, dance, theater, and filmmaking. As part of the program, each artist-in-residence receives an opportunity to showcase their developed work (for visual artists) or perform at one of our partner organizations. Occasionally, supplementary programming is introduced to enrich the artistic process or amplify the artist's voice. For updates or announcements, please follow us on social media.



The Akron Soul Train (AST) Members' Show celebrates our AST community's creativity, cultural voice, and experiences. This exhibit showcases a cross-section of talent from around the region and will highlight individuals who care for, and appreciate, Akron Soul Train’s ultimate mission to support creators and make art accessible to all. We want you to join us and participate as an artist or an art supporter at the public opening on May 23, 2024, from 5:00 - 7:30 pm. Once you become a member you will be invited to our private Members' Mixer on June 20, 2024. The Members' Mixer will bring together community collaborators, curators, exhibition artists, and AST Alumni. 


We will be accepting all artistic mediums including visual, audio, video, performance, and written work. Please note that visual artwork should be no larger than 30" x 30”. On-site performances (e.g. dance, poetry readings, music, theater) are welcomed and encouraged. Submissions are limited to one per artist.


If you would like to participate in the exhibition become a member today. AST offers artist memberships at $25 per year. If you become a member for the members' show we will waive the $25 Residency Application fee in August for artists who plan to apply to our residency program.
