The Alliance of Artists Communities is now accepting applications for the 2013 Midwestern Voices and Visions awards – celebrating, supporting, and promoting the work of highly talented, yet under-recognized artists of color from the Midwest.

Eligibility: The initiative seeks to promote artists of color working in any visual, literary, and/or performance-based media, who display artistic excellence, are committed to an artistic career, and are under-served, under-recognized, or under-represented in the mainstream.

Midwestern Voices and Visions accepts applications from artists from all disciplines who:

(1) are of color and represent the diverse cultural backgrounds of the Midwest;
(2) are permanent residents of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, or Wisconsin;
(3) are not degree-seeking students at any time in 2012 or 2013; and
(4) have not participated in an artist residency previously.

Artists selected for the 2013 Midwestern Voices and Visions awards will receive a one- to three-month residency, a $4000 grant, promotion through an internationally-distributed publication, and inclusion in an exhibition/performance.

Application Deadline: June 7, 2012
