For this project an artist or artist-team will create a public art project or community engagement opportunity that addresses the issues of behavioral health and wellbeing and gets people excited about, interested in, and engaged with the YOU GOOD? campaign that the Foundation launched in November.
The artists will engage and connect with people in the community to find out how they’re doing and if they have any thoughts or comments about “You Good?” (either the campaign or the idea). Artists will then create a work or works around the responses. The media for the project can be the choice of the artist (visual, performance, multimedia, etc.) as long as it is possible to share the work across Pinellas County communities. The work needs to be able to connect with people of varying races, backgrounds, and economic situations.
The budget for the project is up to $5,000 with the ability to fund multiple projects, should artist projects be less than $5,000 and/or additional dollars become available.
