About: Popps Packing offers residencies for emerging and mid-career artists interested in an immersive experience in Hamtramck and Detroit.  Residencies are usually for 1-2 months and applications are reviewed every 4-6months. (We are still figuring out our timing and capacity so bare with us while we figure it out).  Applications will be considered after the deadline if there are vacancies, please email to check.

Popps Packing offers artists many different environments to work in. In addition to the communal studios, we offer the various structures and empty lots around the Popps compound as sites for exploration. The abundance of land, raw materials and structures around Popps give artists many opportunities to realize ambitious site specific projects that could not be accomplished in a traditional studio environment.  

With the help of neighbors, local artists and past residents, we have been reimagining the various underused spaces that surround us into an artistic hub, creating a platform for local and visiting artists to explore installations, architectural interventions, and research based projects while also stabilizing our neighborhood.  Artists who participate in our program are generally interested in the unique context of Detroit and the many layered narratives that exist here. 

Popps Packing is an inclusive and space for all and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, creed, sex, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, in its programs and activities.
