As a Year of Uncertainty (YoU) Community Partner, Malikah is looking for a local NYC-based artist to collaborate on a community mural. The mural is expected to be sited in the Astoria, Queens area. The selected artist will participate in a collective visioning session with community members around the question: “What would the world feel like, taste like, sound like, smell like, and look like if all women were safe and could step into their power?” and will co-create the mural design based on the responses. This opportunity is in partnership with the Queens Museum’s Year of Uncertainty, a program that explores the new ways institutions can support individuals and publics navigating a world that is always and increasingly shifting.
In reflection of the Malikah community, we are centering Black, Indigenous, and POC women and non-binary artists for this opportunity. Muslim, North African, or Arab artists are also encouraged to apply.
Artist fee: $2,500
