The Brief – The Art of Diversity
We all have a story and a relationship to diversity and we want to hear it from emerging artists, through their eyes and their art. Art is, after all, a conversation between a creator and an audience, and we want to start this conversation. Art influences our emotions and emotions are impacting behavior. We want you to create and inspire change through your art.
So, how do you see and experience diversity in your city?
