NOVEMBER 2023 ARTIST OPPORTUNITIES


FAITH COORDINATING CENTER AT WAKE FOREST SCHOOL OF DIVINITY LEARNING IT TOGETHER – REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS

APPLICATION DEADLINE NOVEMBER 6, 2023, BY 11:59 CST


Faith institutions in the Southern U.S. have long been a cornerstone in African American communities in the Southern United States not only for spiritual and religious guidance, but social change and movements to address racial equity, economic disparities, voting rights, and housing conditions. More recently, faith institutions have begun to address health promotion and disease prevention including HIV/AIDS. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to advance the ability for a diverse array of congregations, including Christian churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples, to develop programs and initiatives or conduct research in their local religious communities that promote positive faith and health outcomes, specifically in the area of HIV.

Wake Forest University School of Divinity is seeking faith partners to initiate programs to respond to the HIV crisis in the South by shifting narratives away from stigma toward healing and life-enhancing possibilities for those impacted by HIV/AIDS. Our aim is to collaborate with Christian and interfaith partners, create inclusive faith spaces (virtual and/or in-person) for LGBTQ persons and people living with HIV, and educate emerging faith leaders who will impact how communities respond to HIV/AIDS in the future.

The Learning It Together Artists Cohort will provide funding of up to $10,000 for non-profit organizations (or fiscally sponsored artist) to support the creation and amplification of arts-based projects centered around faith to help reduce stigma and aid in changing the perception of HIV/AIDS in the south. The Faith Coordinating Center will provide potential opportunities for amplification in collaboration with GLAAD and other local, statewide and national media outlets.

We are seeking to fund creative projects that facilitate the creation of inclusive and healing faith (virtual and/or in-person) for LGBTQ persons and people living with and affected by HIV.

Completed proposals are due via the COMPASS Initiative® website (www.gileadcompass.com) by 11:59 PM Central Standard Time, Monday, November 6, 202

NORTH CAROLINA JUSTICE CENTER: ARTIST, HEALTH ADVOCACY PROJECT

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS AND CALL FOR ARTISTS

APPLICATION DEADLINE NOVEMBER 8, 2023

The NC Justice Center is asking for artist help with the education and outreach efforts to enroll more than 600,000 North Carolinians into Medicaid expansion!

For the last decade, the Health Advocacy Project of the NC Justice Center has been dedicated to advocating for the expansion of Medicaid, which allows for more than 600,000 North Carolinians with low incomes to be newly eligible for comprehensive and affordable healthcare.

With December 1, 2023, as the launch date for our state’s Medicaid expansion program, we are seeking a visual/graphic artist who can illustrate/design a visually compelling zine to educate North Carolinians with low incomes about the opportunity to sign-up for Medicaid. The zine will be used as an outreach and educational material that can be distributed to community members across the state. We would like this resource to be distributed at syringe access programs, food banks, homeless shelters, and any other community space where people who are likely to be eligible for Medicaid expansion frequent.

Printed copies of the zine will be provided free of charge to community-based organizations and available for download online.

Preference will be given to artists who can complete the zine within a 4-week time period.

A total of $5,000 is available for the artist’s time, including planning and feedback meetings with the NC Justice Center staff responsible for overseeing this proposal and zine design.

The zine will be a public resource that is available free of charge and free of copyright. The zine will be available as a free downloadable resource for community-based organizations to access. The zine will be wholly attributed as the original work of the selected artist.

Materials must be submitted by November 8, 2023, via email to the attention of Hyun Namkoong, Deputy Director of the N.C. Justice Center’s Health Advocacy Project at hyun@ncjustice.org. A confirmation email will be sent to all artists.
