Humanities @ Home: Humanities & Healing Call for Works

CU Advancement and the Center for Humanities & the Arts (CHA) are collaborating to promote humanities and arts and to document the ways our community is responding in view of to the mass shooting that occurred at the Table Mesa King Soopers on March 22, 2021.

We invite anyone in the CU Boulder community (staff, student, faculty) to use art and/or humanistic perspectives, tools, resources, and methods to produce a work over summer 2021. Deadline to submit entry: Sept 1, 2021.

Top 5 projects will receive $1,000 each
Honorable Mentions will receive $250 each

Project ideas could include:
short film
short story (or series of stories)
essay (or series of essays)

See CHA’s Shelter in Place Projects for examples.

We strongly encourage collaborations and partnerships, but the applicant MUST have an active CU Boulder affiliation in fall 2021 when the awards will be honored.

Projects must also have the capability of being shared digitally so should have some form of on-line component. For example, you can record yourself in the process of producing/making your work of art or you can read your short story aloud and provide animated visuals to accompany it.
