The New Jersey Historical Commission (NJHC) is accepting letters of interest for the commissioning of digital content for its NJ Women Vote: The 19th Amendment at 100 Digital Project, part of New Jersey’s initiative to commemorate the centennial of the passage of the 19th Amendment and American women achieving the right to vote. This digital project seeks to engage artists and humanities scholars to create digital content that addresses the theme of voting and suffrage, particularly related to New Jersey. Individual artists or humanities scholars may apply, and teams of scholars and artists are encouraged to apply together. Priority will be given to proposals where artists and scholars partner to create the work. Submissions are due July 12, 2020 and will be submitted through www.callforentry.org (CAFE). Notification of awards will be made in August, with finished work expected for virtual exhibition in October.
For more information and to submit a proposal, please visit: https://artist.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=7441.
