Eugene-based nonprofit Beyond Toxics and the NAACP are co-hosting the first Oregon Environmental Justice Pathways Summit at the University of Oregon on April 17-18. Frontline communities will be joining with scholars, students, policymakers, nonprofits, and others to discuss avenues for addressing environmental justice concerns across the state. We especially aim to uplift youth voices throughout the summit (which is free for students to attend!).
We are seeking artworks made by youth ages 15-25 related to the themes of environmental and racial justice. Selected artists will be invited to showcase/perform their piece at the summit. The deadline for submissions is on February 15, 2020. I should note that the application is by no means rigorous — it asks for general applicant information and provides instructions for uploading artwork. Linked above is the Call for Artists flyer, which provides more information on submission guidelines.
