POVA Artist Application
Poverty and the Arts (POVA) welcomes artists impacted by homelessness to apply. We believe we are better as a society and organization when we build relationships with those who are different from us. We embrace each individual’s unique talents and honor diverse life and work styles. We acknowledge the numerous barriers people in society experience to engaging in artistic, economic, and social opportunities. Our desire is that POVA will be comprised of artists from diverse backgrounds and experiences.
