The North Dakota Council on the Arts received a grant from the National Arts and Disability Center at the University of California Los Angeles and the National Endowment for the Arts.
With this grant the NDCA will conduct a series of activities focused on the continued development of careers in the arts for persons with disabilities. The activities are based on previous work in this realm, and rely on the collaboration among the NDCA, the North Dakota Vocational Rehabilitation office, and the North Dakota Center for Persons with Disabilities.
The primary focus of the grant project is to improve the employment condition of artists and arts administrators with disabilities in North Dakota through ongoing interactive education and communication. One of three goals is that North Dakota will have an interactive statewide website on careers in the arts for persons with disabilities.
This opportunity to create a logo is open to visual artists with disabilities (15 years and up) that reside in North Dakota. The purpose of the logo is to give graphic identity to the Art=Work website currently in production.
Logos submitted after Sept. 14 will not be reviewed.
