Public Art RFQ Natural Resources Agency and Health and Human Services

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The State of California will implement a permanent Public Art Program in Sacramento in conjunction with two new build projects, the New Natural Resource Headquarters, and the Health and Human Services Building. The Public Art Program aims to inspire world-class public artworks, engaging diverse voices in shaping our civic spaces. It is an opportunity for artists to create within the rich contexts of the California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA), California Health and Human Services (CHHS). 

Four unique public art commission opportunities are open to artists through this Request for Qualifications (RFQ). A short-list of artists will be selected from the RFQ respondents and will be invited to participate in a funded proposal round, Request for Proposals (RFP). The final commissions will be selected and awarded from the proposing artists. 

We encourage artists to take time looking at each opportunity and applying to the commission that best suits their interests and practice. Artists may apply to more than one commission opportunity but must apply separately to each. Artists should submit Statements of Qualification (SOQ) with artwork samples and letters of interest relevant to the specific commission to which they are applying, even when applying to multiple commissions. We invite artists to engage critically with the mission of the California Natural Resource Agency and California Health and Human Services, as well as the vision outlined in the Public Art Plan.

Level Up Society

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Arts Business Collaborative (ABC) is excited to announce an opportunity for art submissions for our first annual POC Art Auction Fundraiser! ABC invites emerging artists of color to submit 2D works of art to our group exhibition, “Level - Up Society.” 

 

Inspired by the rules that govern gaming cultural (both tactile and virtual), ABC considers how the social contracts and consent required to play any game successfully acts as a microcosm for the way our larger social structures operate. ABC would like to oppose the rules that deny access, equity, and inclusion in support of a more equal playing field for people of color.

 

We challenge artists to imagine and create a new reality where disadvantaged communities truly advance to the next level! What does a leveled - up society look like to you? What social contracts would need to be put in place to elevate marginalized groups in society? 

 

We look forward to reviewing your submissions!

Artist Opportunity

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

We are the ‘Asking for it’ exhibition. Our aim is to create a place for people to share and feel and come together over adversity. Through expression of art - in a variety of mediums such as film, photography, poetry, art and sound - the exhibition will take the viewer on a journey from the beginning to recovery and survival. Titled ‘Asking for it’ the exhibition not only looks at the experiences of the survivor but the societal judgements and miseducation around the topic of sexual abuse/violence.

As people who have had these experiences, we have both understood the difficulties of going through this and coming out the other side. We felt passionately that there should be a place that this topic could be openly discussed and expressed through art, from artists who have been through this journey or are still going through this. We believe that art is a powerful tool to express and empower artists and viewers, while educating those who have not experienced this. 

We are looking for submissions from any art form may that be spoken word, film, photography, poetry, art, audio, music, etc in response to sexual assault/violence. Submissions are open to anyone and everyone of any gender, race, location and age (18+)

Please note that submissions is not an opportunity to talk about triggering events as we are not professionals or a service/organization. If you would like to talk and open a conversation about anything that has happened to you or people that you know please talk to your family, friends and GP, or if you feel uneasy about those options there are counselling methods.

Asking for it exhibition is a safe space where artists can express and respond via art. We respect every single artist and individual who has been through any stage of assault/abuse, whether that is mentally or physically, small or big, something you have endured or you know someone that has been through similar experiences.  If you would not like to proceed at any time throughout your application we admire your bravery and respect your decision and can opt out at any time.

Our confidentiality is kept between an email based communication and is always protected. We will always ask for your consent when sharing your material. Unfortunately we can not guarantee payment at this point as we are a small organisation, however we will be fundraising during the exhibition and the money collected will be equally split amongst the artists whose work is shared at the exhibition.

We will work individually with each artist to facilitate how their work will be delivered to the exhibition. Please note that digital medium submissions are international, however due to being a small organisation and transportation costs physical mediums can only be submitted from the UK base only.

It is your choice as an artist if you present your name or stay anonymous.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS : August 31st 2019
