Artists/Speech Writers Wanted-$50 prize

Mon Mar 06, 2006 00:00

Can you imagine a speech given by president Bush that would convince you that he has had a change of heart and could actually be the president of your dreams? It is all too easy (and seems to get easier and easier) to criticize our president and his administration. Life changing events (often of the extremely painful variety) force us to reevaluate our values and actions. What if this happened to our president. What if he were humbled in some way which caused a profound change in his outlook on life and his role as the leader of our country - turning the aggressive posturing of an all-attack-all-the-time leader into a gentler, wiser soul determined to demonstrate the power of honesty and vulnerability. Channel your frustration, use your wit and ingenuity to write "the speech that shocked the world." Send your 1-2 page typed speech to me by March 6th at to be considered for the award of "most convincing" speech. The winning speech will be read by a Bush impersonator and made into an audio recording. The winner will receive a $50 cash prize and a copy of the audio recording. For inspiration I suggest reading about Antanas Mockus, former Mayor of Bogota.

Call for Artists
The Independent School of Art - Limited Edition Grant

About the ISA:
The Independent School of Art is an experimental alternative to the institutional model of college-level art education. Without institutional affiliations, degrees, or public funding, the school exists solely through the labor and efforts of its participants, and thus fosters a proactive approach to art education.

About the ISA Limited Edition Grant:
In an effort to extend our activity further into the art community at large, the ISA is offering $500 to artists working in any media to assist in the production of an edition. In addition to funding, ISA students will be available to help in the production process if needed. We encourage both traditional and non-traditional interpretations of the idea of an edition.  The exact quantity of the edition will be proposed by the artist and decided upon in collaboration with the ISA Limited Edition Grant committee. The resulting edition will be sold by the ISA with proceeds split 50/50 with the artist.  A small number of artist's proofs will belong to the artist.
