#HTownVotes: Call for Artist Proposals

Houston in Action issues a call for artists to submit proposals for projects that will motivate youth and people of color in the Houston area to mobilize to vote early beginning October 13. We seek projects in which artists will collaborate with organizers and/or community partner organizations to create culturally relevant artistic expressions that inspire and mobilize voter engagement. HiA will award a minimum of four (4) projects, in various artistic disciplines, at $10,000 each for design, implementation and community engagement leading up to the November 2020 elections. 

The goal: To activate Youth, Black, Latinx, and Asian American communities to engage and vote in Harris County. Collectively, we hope these artist-led, cultural organizing projects will mobilize voters this year!
