Call for Creatives

Arts Midwest is launching a new storytelling initiative that celebrates arts, creativity, and culture in our region 


We are working with a wide range of creatives to commission new stories about Midwestern creativity, with an emphasis on multimedia stories created of, by, and for people of color and Native and rural communities. This initiative will inspire, connect, and catalyze creative communities, and help shift narratives and break stereotypes around Midwestern communities and identities.
