Call for local Alaskan Artists!


Our communities have so much talent! We want to support local artists and creative hands. We are looking for a new design that embodies equity, justice, and collective action. Help inspire action through ART!

Native Movement and FCAC (Fairbanks Climate Action Coalition) will co-host a collaborative Art Show on June 1st in Fairbanks where we will showcase movement-centered artwork and musical performances.

Winners of this T-shirt Design Contest will be showcased at the event and will be awarded $250 plus goodies!

Submissions are due April 24th.

Email submissions to siqiniq@nativemovement.org with the subject line “ART SHOW”.
