Call for Artists: Transgender Day of Remembrance
EXTENDED DEADLINE for Applications: Sunday October 21

The LGBT Center, the University Chaplaincy, and the Office of the Provost are cosponsoring a second annual Trans Day of Remembrance student art project. The project will speak to themes of trans identity, resilience, and celebration, with special attention to the experiences of trans people of color and survivors of transmisogynistic violence. Proposals may, but do not have to, involve depictions of the trans and non-binary people lost to violence since November 2017.

We hope to work collaboratively with a student artist in the Tufts and/or SMFA community to design the project and create the exhibit. The project may be moved to different locations on campus throughout its exhibition and will be accompanied in its various display spaces by trans-affirming resources made available by local organizations that support trans and non-binary wellness, community, and activism. The artist selected will be allotted a $500 budget for materials to create the project and receive a separate stipend of $1000. We expect to begin displaying the project in its first location on November 20. No formal artist training is required. Trans and non-binary students are strongly encouraged to apply.

To apply, please send: (1) a short (~150-200 words) account of your personal interest in being a part of the project, (2) a short proposal of your vision for the exhibit (style of portraits, manner of display, etc.), including a rough breakdown of how you expect to use the $500 materials budget, and (3) three examples of portrait/depiction work that reflect the style you would bring the project to both Hope Freeman (hope.freeman@tufts.edu) and Walker Bristol (walker.bristol@tufts.edu) with the subject line “Trans Day of Remembrance Project.” You can also e-mail Hope or Walker with any questions about the project.

Deadline for applications is end of the day October 21. ... See MoreSee Less
