Our Space is looking for People of Color/Indigenous artists (POC/I) to apply. Additional eligibility for applicants includes:

  • Be at least 18 years of age.
  • Be working, professional artists (whether emerging or established).
  • Live within the seven county Twin Cities metro area (Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington counties). Artists who live in or have a community/cultural connection to Saint Paul are especially encouraged to apply.

We are seeking POC/I artists from a broad range of creative disciplines including but not limited to:

  • Performing arts
  • Spoken word
  • Movement & dance
  • Circus arts
  • Puppetry
  • Visual arts
  • Interdisciplinary/Multidisciplinary

The artist call application closes on Thursday, May 31 at 11:59p. We highly encourage POC/I artists interested in public art to apply; artists do not need to have experience in public art to apply. We ask that Our Space artist applicants refrain from submitting to the separate Our Space call for community stories.


We will have an in-person info session on Tuesday, May 22nd 11-1p at Rondo Community Outreach Library to talk more about Our Space, the artist call and answer any questions you may have. Please register for the info session.

We will have a live webinar version of this info session TBD. Please contact Our Space project manager, Elle Thoni, at elle@tcmediaalliance.org if you would like to be informed when the webinar date has been set.
