Art Prospect brings together arts organizations, artists, curators, and urbanists to challenge standard notions of public space, nationality and culture and to demonstrate artistic and social practices as stimulate for community engagement and positive change. This initiative builds on CEC ArtsLink's 5 years of conducting St. Petersburg's only annual public art event, the Art Prospect Festival, a slate of activities which facilitate international exchange and collaboration between arts communities through network building, international public art festivals, residencies, workshops, and seminars.

The Art Prospect Residency program provides opportunities for artists and curators to conduct research, create new work, collaborate with local arts communities, and create special projects in partnership with local arts organizations. Each 2 to 4 week residency is individually designed to enable visiting artists and curators to learn about the local arts community, develop their own work, and share information about their work and culture with local audiences.
