Please feel free to turn in application with final written work prior to the deadline, but no later than this date so that we have time to document and catalog all the submissions

About the Project and Exhibition:
The project is a collaboration between Anysquared Projects and Pilsen Art and Community House (PACH), as part of the Home Not Home Series. We are excited to also inspire collaboration between writers and artists while they explore the Home Not Home theme.

Accepted writer’s works prompt new works of visual artists. The collaborative works will result in a poster series distributed city-wide and exhibited at PACH.

In early 2024, PACH and AnySquared will host a “meet and greet” at AnySquared Studio for writers and visual artists to exchange ideas for the posters. The exhibition will be in May 2024 at PACH with an opening, and a series of arts programming including workshops, spoken word events, music nights, markets, and gallery hours.

Exhibition Opening: Friday, May 3rd, 2024
Exhibition runs: May 3rd – June 2nd
