Common Field : Save the Date

Please save the date for our convening, Hand-in-Glove in Minneapolis September 17th-20th 2015. Hand-in-Glove will assemble organizers and organizations from across the country to discuss practices and strategies for resources, advocacy, and exchanges in the visual arts. ​

Call for Submissions - I Don't Do Boxes : Act Out : Deadline May 1
Now seeking submissions from queer youth who are (or aspiring to be) artists, poets, and writers for the third issue of I Don’t Do Boxes, a magazine exploring LGBTQ experience.
