Participate In Our Programs
We're always on the lookout for teens to participate in our projects and programs. Let us know if you or someone you know would be a good fit! Please note that unless otherwise stated, all opportunities are for teens (ages 13-19) of color only.
Colorization Collective x Diversimento Virtual Concert
Diversimento and The Colorization Collective are co-producing a concert to support diverse artists! This is a great opportunity to perform in front of a wider audience and give back to a good cause.
All you have to do is submit a video of your performance - whether that's a spoken word piece or a classical piano concerto - and we'll handle the rest. We will prioritize submissions that connect to the theme of "cultural heritage."
Sign ups close at 11:59 PM EST on November 30th, and video submissions are due by January 8th. The final virtual concert will take place in mid-February. Apply here.
Publication Opportunity: "You"
Submissions for our newest project, a zine curated for and by teen artists of color, are now open. The theme of our debut issue will be “You” - feel free to interpret that in any way that you’d like.
The creator of the best submission, as judged by our team, will win a prize of $100.
Applications are open to teens from around the world. Submissions can be of any size and any medium: poetry, playwriting, photography, illustrations, etc.
You can submit as many times as you would like, and there is an option to submit anonymously as well. All work must be original.
Submissions close at 11:59 PM PST on November 20th, 2021. Contributors will receive a free copy of the zine. Submit here.
Online Content: Featured Teen Artist of Color
Through this project, teens of color can have their artistic journey and artwork featured on our web-series/social media and blog. Interviewees (as well as any associated arts organizations) may receive publicity on our YouTube, blog, and social media channels.
