Our Identities Unedited Request for Qualifications
City of Lancaster, Lancaster, PA
The Our Identities Unedited Public Art Project Planning Committee is currently seeking qualifications from artists with experience leading/working with collaborative community-based projects. Project partners include the Lancaster County Community Foundation and YWCA of Lancaster. The goal of this project is to widen our community narrative by creating safe spaces for civic dialogue, providing platforms for underrepresented members of our community to tell their stories, and setting the stage to break down existing silos. Using public art as one medium, engaged individuals and our community will determine what the project looks like and ultimately what the lasting reminder of this conversation will be.
