“What’s Going On: Voices of Shaw” is scheduled to have nine days of programming that “examines and celebrates the micro-cultures of Shaw through the voices and diverse lens of the community,” according to a call for submissions from arts incubator Pleasant Plains Workshop.
The art project, which is slated to run from Sept. 24 to Oct. 2, could include:
Walking tours (traditional or alternative), cooking classes/food events, performances (dance, theater, etc), panel discussions, fashion shows, dance parties, community meetings, cultural celebrations/showcases, and film screenings.
“The selected projects set within the public or shared spaces, should be community focused, site-specific and each will have an engagement element,” the notice for submissions says. “Additionally, the activities should have a commonality of inclusion, sharing and social interaction.”
Interested Shaw residents and business owners can submit their programming ideas online until Aug. 26. Pleasant Plains Workshop will award $250 for each activity its curators pick for Voices of Shaw.
An organizer of the public art project didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
