The Genesis Collective is calling for Black creatives in Beaver County to submit their work to an art invitational, Being Black in Beaver County. This opportunity offers prize money and employment opportunities.
Please, submit your work, tell your friends, and support Black creatives in our region!
If we can display it, you should submit it. That means that if you have a film we can watch, a poem that can be performed or displayed for reading, a song, a dance that can be recorded, a painting, a photograph, a cake, or whatever else you do that channels your creative energy, that's what we want to see.
Email us at that address, and we will send instructions.
This is a few sentences about you, your work, your inspiration, and your process. Also, this should include your decisions about this particular piece, and your interpretation of the theme.
Contact The Genesis Collective on social: @gcollective art on FB or IG. We can help! To read more about an artist's statement, visit this site.
Artists, but not artists who are a part of The Genesis Collective advisory team. The Genesis Collective is hosting and organizing the event, but we have no say in who wins.
We want you to ponder these words and reflect on your experience living here. It could be a story of joy, pain, laughter, community, thriving, overcoming, or anything/ else that is reflective of these words to you.
First prize will win $1200, second prize wins $1000, and third prize wins $800.
NO! You must have your clearances to work with youth, and you must express interest and be able to teach your skill set in one of the three organizations who will host our instructors: Aliquippa Impact, The Center, and Neighborhood North: Museum of Play.
