Call for Pitches: Midwest Makers Video Series

 

Midwest makers are all around us. They are visual artists, chefs, community organizers, folk and traditional arts practitioners, musicians, oral historians, farmers, and next-door neighbors. They work in large and small communities, wear multiple hats, and add to the creative culture of the Midwest.

If you’re all about capturing the people who make the Midwest special, we want to hear from you! Selected videographers will receive $3,000 each to create a short documentary video showcasing a Midwest Maker. Your creation will be featured on Arts Midwest’s platforms as part of our Creativity News Desk, amplifying the creativity of these incredible Midwesterners.

 

Applications due September 24, 2023.
