A program that builds on your unique strengths.

The Bunting Neighborhood Leadership Program (BNLP) is a one-of-a-kind initiative led by the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute.  We recognize that Baltimore neighborhoods have a wealth of community members with passion, leadership, and vision who know their communities best – and are therefore well positioned to address community problems.  However, there are limited resources available at the neighborhood level for leadership training. To address this issue and support emerging leaders, the BNLP will cultivate and train neighborhood-level and community-based leaders to build with them the knowledge, skills, and mentorship to improve neighborhood health outcomes.

WHAT: Now Be Here #4, DMV (DC/MD/VA)
Female and female-identifying artists are frequently overlooked in the art world—just 30% of artists represented by commercial galleries are women, and women artists only have about 25% of the solo shows at major museums. In partnership with Los Angeles-based artist Kim Schoenstadt, the Now Be Here project comes to the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) in Washington, D.C., for its fourth and final U.S. iteration.

Now Be Here #4, DMV will gather female and female-identifying visual artists for a group photograph of historic proportions. Previous Now Be Here gatherings have taken place in Los Angeles, New York City and Miami where, collectively, more than 2,000 women artists participated. Co-organized by D.C.-based artist Linn Meyers, this version will also feature a cocktail hour and an artist resource fair with representatives from numerous arts organizations in the DMV. In addition, Now Let’s Talk, a dynamic schedule of talks, lectures and panel discussions, will bring museums and organizations across the region together to highlight female artists and discuss issues of women in the arts.

The project website will list the artists in attendance so every artist is identified.

Invitations to local artists will be sent out in September. If you are with the media and interested in covering the event, please contact smeteer@nmwa.org to be added to the press list.

WHEN:
Wed., October 25, 2017, 6:30 p.m.

PRICE:
Free. Pre-registration for artists is required. Invitations will be sent in September.

Now Be Here #4, DMV is a free, event for female and female-identifying artists. If you would like an invitation please e-mail: freshtalk@nmwa.org.

Tectonic Space is accepting submissions for their upcoming show, What May Be, focusing on futuristic visions.

One of the most powerful elements of science fiction and fantasy mediums is their ability to depict worlds that challenge our views and what we are familiar with. They can depict worlds not bound to our norms or expectations. These genres can offer warnings or promises, predicting possible darker or brighter futures, and imagine the societal, environmental, and political impacts of our current actions.

This show is open to all mediums reflecting the above theme.

The removal of Baltimore’s Confederate monuments has captured the attention of the public and inspired artists and others to propose ideas for what might happen next at the four sites left behind. In response, the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts has created an online portal, “Monumental Sites,” to serve as a central repository for the public’s suggestions and ideas. Take a look at the Monumental Sites section on our Public Art page for more information: http://bit.ly/BOPAPublicArt
