Open Call for Project Proposals from Advocates!
the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP)
The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) is looking for advocacy partners for its Public Access Design program. Public Access Design projects are short, intensive collaborations between CUP, an artist or designer, and a community organization or advocacy group that is working to break down a policy or planning issue that affects its constituents. For the first two Public Access Design projects, CUP worked with Damayan Migrant Workers Association and designer Raj Kottamasu on a short video on the labor trafficking of domestic workers, and with Legal Services NYC and designer Melissa Gorman on a wallet- size foldout on language access for limited English proficient New Yorkers.
CUP is seeking new project proposals from NYC-based advocates who are working on a social justice issue that would benefit from a visual explanation, and who are interested in working collaboratively to produce a visual tool. Strong applicants will have firsthand knowledge of the project topic, access to and a relationship with the constituency affected by that topic, and the capacity to participate in regular meetings and provide feedback throughout the process. Applications are due Thursday, February 28th, at 8 pm. Advocates can find out more and apply online at publicaccessdesign.org
