Are you an artist and a member of the African, Caribbean or Black (ACB) communities? In hopes of supporting the academic pursuits of ACB students at Carleton, the Umoja Black Community Engagement Program out of Student Experience Office and Carleton Athletics are collaborating on a not-for-profit initiative to create and sell shirts representative of the community.
We are looking to commission an artist within the ACB community to create a design for limited edition shirts that will be sold throughout January and February in celebration of Black History Month. 100 per cent of the profits from this initiative will go towards an Emergency Student Fund for ACB students at Carleton.
The selected artist will:
- Be compensated $500 for their time and the design created
- Have their artist profile showcased alongside shirt sales
- Be interviewed to share their inspiration behind their design and to promote their work
- Have their design and work promoted through the Student Experience Office (Ravens Student Life) and Carleton Athletics (@CURavens) social media platforms
Deadline to submit your artwork is Monday, December 5, 2022.
For more information, please visit the Design Contest page.
