Please look through our FAQs to see if we covered questions you may have about Our Space or the artist call. If your question is not covered below, please contact us at email@example.com.
GENERAL OUR SPACE QUESTIONS
What is the purpose behind Our Space Is Spoken For?
Secondly, the Our Space process is also intentionally designed to activate more BIPOC artists within the public art realm. The cross-disciplinary and collaborative elements open possibilities for conceptually innovative storytelling. Our Space’s methods also open a pathway for these new ideas into public art, which is typically curated by city boards or fine arts institutions.
Why is this a Twin Cities Media Alliance (TCMA) project?
We do this through the media arts using an equity and justice lens. With that, we invest in storytelling in all its forms—including digital journalism, film, audio, public and visual art.
How long has Our Space been running?
I’m not an artist, but Our Space sounds amazing. Are there other ways for me to be involved?
ARTIST CALL ENTRY QUESTIONS
When is the deadline to apply for the artist call?
The deadline is Monday, June 7, 2021, at 5:00pm.
How will artists be compensated?
How do you define “community or cultural connection” to St. Paul?
Perhaps you find places and faces that strongly reflect your own cultural identities, or you lived or worshiped in Saint Paul. Maybe you learned something about who you are, or began to unlock your artistic potential. Maybe you worked or volunteered there.
As an applicant, feel free to define these connections for yourself.
I am a BIPOC artist living in the Twin Cities metro area, but I don’t have a community/cultural connection to Saint Paul. Can I still apply?
Can I apply again if I’ve been in the program already?
If I applied in the past, and didn’t get in, can I apply again?
I am a white artist. Can I apply?
This artist opportunity is for BIPOC (Black/Indigenous/People of Color) artists.
