Project -Logue: Calling Storytellers, Translators and Artists

Project -Logue

Workshops Begin August 2018
Exhibition Opens March 2019
Call Ends May 2018

PITTSBURGH, PA – -LOGUE is a Pittsburgh-based organization that promotes cultural exchange through artistic translation.

Through a series of art workshops from August 2018 through March 2019, -LOGUE will build a diverse network of translators, artists, and storytellers to tell the story of Pittsburgh – a story that can’t be fully understood without crossing language barriers. The stories and artworks created will be displayed in a multimedia, multilingual exhibit in March 2019. This project will prompt multicultural dialogue and raise awareness of Pittsburgh’s linguistic diversity.

If English is not your home language, -LOGUE wants to help you tell your story. They are also looking for artists and native-fluency English translators interested in cultural exchange, who will collaborate with storytellers to create multimedia, cross-cultural art. Final artforms will be displayed in -LOGUE’s March 2019 multilingual exhibit.

For more information and a chance to share stories, contact prjlogue@gmail.com.

Call for Art: Belonging Community Art Project

Belonging Project

A Place Where We All Belong

This city owes its resilience to the spirit and creative energy of the people who have made Pittsburgh their home, built communities here, and contributed to our shared future.

At this critical time in our nation’s history, when many immigrants and refugees don’t feel welcome in this country, The Sprout Fund is launching Belonging, a new community art project to positively affirm the notion that we all belong.

Call for Art

All people living in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County are invited to submit original works of art that express the concept of “belonging.”

  • Submissions due by Thursday, May 4, 2017 @ 7:00 pm ET
  • All submissions must be rendered with a 1:1 aspect ratio
  • Digital submissions are strongly preferred

A jury of art professionals will select 1 winning design to be reproduced as posters and yard signs and distributed throughout the region. The creator of the winning design will receive a $3,000 artist honorarium. 15 additional designs will be selected for inclusion on a “community voices” poster and receive $100 each.
