Art+Activism is a college-wide program which looks to foster artistic endeavors that are in alignment with Columbia College Chicago’s mission. In considering the ways in which an art practice can facilitate conversation and engage with timely issues, we offer various support to collaborative, student-powered projects and initiatives that expand beyond the studio. We challenge our student artists to think about the ways in which creative energy can be utilized as thought-provoking advocacy for change.
What is available: There are various kinds of support available to current students including: logistics assistance, identifying collaborators, marketing, promotion and up to $500 towards honorariums and certain expenses.
Deadlines: Proposals for support during the academic year will be reviewed on the Fall and Spring deadlines. Spring deadline: February 7, 2014. You must apply for support at least 4 weeks in advance of your event.
