CALL FOR ART
The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council is looking for formline design logo art for the new biennial indigenous music festival, Rock Aaw’k, planned for June 11 – 13, 2021, in Juneau.
ROCK AAW’K PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The Juneau Indigenous Music Festival, Rock Aaw’k, is a biennial weekend-long event, presenting indigenous performance arts, co-sponsored by the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council, Sealaska Corporation, Sealaska Heritage Institute, Tlingit & Haida, KTOO Public Media, Huna Totem Corporation, with additional partners pending.
GOALS OF THE FESTIVAL TO BE REFLECTED IN THE LOGO:
Rock Aaw’k in Juneau, Alaska uplifts and showcases indigenous culture from around the world through performance art, connecting all people to celebrate global heritage, diversity, and equity.
Diversity & Inclusiveness: Promote cross-cultural awareness, recognition, and respect by creating accessible and welcoming environments, free of discrimination, and tolerance of all cultures and people.
Artistic Excellence: Present a diverse range of exceptional Alaskan artists, welcome global artists to share their culture, and provide audiences with engaging opportunities to discover music from around the world.
Cultural Justice: Connect community-minded people who are committed to a fair and equitable society by providing opportunities for meaningful engagement and focusing on cultural justice out of many other social justice needs.
Environmental Stewardship: Promote care and respect for our beautiful space, aiming to minimize our impact on the environment, and inspiring our community through progressive initiatives.
Arts Economy: Recognize and build the role of traditional indigenous arts in contributing to a thriving arts economy by increasing understanding and appreciation for these art forms.
The logo will be the basis for subsequent branding efforts, and will be used in print, on promotional items such as hats or shirts, in the visuals surrounding the festival production.
The artist stipend available for this project is $500.
Local and regional formline design artists of all ages are eligible to apply.
Proposals are due April 30 at 5 pm, and may be submitted through online application form or by hard copy at the Arts Council offices.
Selection will be made by a panel of representatives from the sponsoring partners.
