Artists/Artist Groups – From Springboard – An Opportunity
Springboard for the Arts’ mission is to cultivate vibrant communities by connecting artists with the resources they need to make a living and a life.
New opportunity for artists/artist teams!
Springboard for the Arts and The Citizens League are partnering on a new project! We will engage local artists to inform and inspire the public around issues of aging through the lens of home and community, and how this affects or reveals policy change. This project brings together Springboard’s expertise in supporting and amplifying the creative voice and agency of artists with The Citizens League 60+ year history of effective bipartisan policy change in Minnesota.
We are seeking 4 artists or artist teams for $5000 project commissions. Each artist/team will focus on a different issue in collaboration with Citizens League staff and their organizational partners in aging, along with individuals from listening sessions. The artists/artist teams will design public projects that 1) increase awareness of the issues around aging and the needed policy change, if applicable and 2) foster active engagement of more people in the process of change as it relates to aging.
There will be an informational session on Tuesday, 8/9, in our Lowertown offices, and the deadline to apply is Monday, 8/22.
