CALL FOR COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT & COLLABORATIVE PHOTO-BASED PROJECTS FROM WOMEN, TRANSGENDER, AND NON-BINARY ARTISTS WORKING ACROSS THE UNITED STATES, D.C., AND PUERTO RICO

Do you have bold ideas for a photo-based project that redefines how we understand and respond to urgent issues in the United States today? Join our developing project as a founding artist. We, Women is not just a grant. It’s an opportunity to shape a national conversation about how to find common ground on divisive issues through photography and community engagement.  

Selected artists will receive:

  • A cash grant of $5,000-$10,000 for the continuation of existing work or the creation of a new project in a community they have a demonstrated commitment to
  • Mentorship and production support from We, Women leaders, project partners, and advisors
  • Promotion and marketing of projects
  • We, Women exhibition at Photoville Fall 2020
  • Inclusion in a traveling nationwide exhibition with/concurrent programming beginning Fall 2020

The first five We, Women projects have been selected and will be covering issues in NY, CA, NM, LA, and IL. We are building the second group, up to 15 projects, through this call for proposals due on June 30, 2019 at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time. Applicants are invited to apply with any project idea, in any state, D.C., or Puerto Rico with the exception of the states mentioned above.

We believe that gender is fluid. We, Women is inclusive of a plurality of voices including womxn, transgender, and non binary people. 

We recommend working on your answers in a separate document and pasting your answers into the online form.

Artists will receive funding in late 2019 for projects completed by Fall 2020. 

Please read our full guidelines before applying.
