Calls for Artists: Sacred Street
The City of Atlanta - Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA) is currently seeking creative and innovative Photographers and Scholars for the 2019 ELEVATE Public Art Program. Experienced local Photographers and Scholars are invited to submit qualifications and budget breakdowns through 11:59pm EST, August 16, 2019.
This is a photo project that aims to capture what is sacred to the members of the Pittsburgh community. Sacred Street is hiring local photographers to lend their abilities to community leaders who will assist in compiling a photo magazine of Pittsburgh’s sacred spaces. This project amplifies community voices that will tell the story of their neighborhood through the lens of its inhabitants. Viewers will understand what is sacred about the neighborhood through staged photos and archival and interview material gathered by the photographers to accompany the stories.
These visual essays will muse on the following questions: What makes a space sacred? How does an artist capture the sacred through photography? How can a space be artistically reimagined as sacred by the members who dwell in it?
