Advocate in Residence

Connecting the community to our mission through art.

Call for Submissions

One chosen artist will receive a stipend of $1,000 for their contribution to our mission. This amount constitutes full payment for services, including necessary materials for the creation of the work. The proposal should be a onetime creation that can be used for many years for our program’s promotional purposes. The artist will be offered a space in our office and must be willing to sign a release of intellectual property. 50% of the stipend will be paid at the contract signing and the remainder at the time of project completion. The artist may need a professional photographer to create high-resolution digital files of their piece—please work with the organization on this factor.
