Opportunity: ACES 2022 – Call for Artists

Aritistic Discipline: Cultural, Dance, Film, Music, New Media, Stage, Visual, Words

ACES // Artists of Color Expo & Symposium is a BIPOC-led event featuring performances, exhibits, workshops, films, presentations, artist talks, and info sessions.

Our vision is to establish a space to celebrate and center ourselves, especially in communities of color where crisis breeds innovation. We gather in joy and solidarity, to celebrate our work and to see each other as resources, while focusing on the challenges and solutions we face as artists of color in the Pacific Northwest.

We invite you to apply and share your art, expertise, and passion!

Applications close October 31. Find details & apply here!

APPLICANTS MUST BE WASHINGTON STATE RESIDENTS AND THOSE WHO INFUSE THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WITH THEIR RADIANT AND INVALUABLE MELANIN.

Event Date: Friday, April 1 – Sunday April 3, 2022

We intend to present ACES as a live, in-person event. But as the event date nears, if CDC guidelines suggest limiting in-person gatherings, we will follow their lead.
