What is the role of public artmaking as we enter this new phase of the pandemic and begin to welcome one another back into public spaces, in the midst of ongoing racism and white supremacy culture that continues to plague our public spaces? How might we imagine and create public art that fosters and inspires more just and vibrant futures for our public spaces and public life?
NEFA’s Public Art for Spatial Justice and Collective Imagination for Spatial Justice grant opportunities aim to support artists along with culture bearers, community leaders and activists in this work of reimaging public artmaking that inspire and anchor more just public spaces in our communities across Massachusetts.
Deadline to apply is coming up: May 24, 2021, 11:59 PM EST.
