Call for Indigenous Artists of Wisconsin Nations

Deadline is March 31st

The Wisconsin DOJ MMIW Task Force is calling for submissions from Indigenous MMIWG2S survivors, families, advocates, and artists who wish to express their testimony in the expression of art. This art should reflect the strength, resilience, and determination of our MMIWG2S survivors and families, as well as bring awareness to the epidemic of MMIWG2S.

We recognize that art to us as Indigenous peoples is medicine and helps us to share and document our experiences. We are accepting all forms of art submitted such as (but not limited to): beadwork, quillwork, basketmaking, woodworking, moccasin making, painting, drawing, and regalia making that tell your story of MMIWG2S.

We are asking for digital pictures of your artwork be sent into the task force by following the digital submission instructions linked here. If possible, we ask artists to submit a written explanation of the art and its personal meaning to them in connection to MMIWG2S.

These digital submissions of art will be used in the Wisconsin DOJ MMIW Task Force Report and Implementation Plan, outreach materials, social media, and other task force related presentations.

If you wish for your artwork to be considered for the MMIW Task Force Logo, deadline is March 31, 2021.
