The Northern Gateway CDC’s Committee and the Prince George’s Arts and Humanities Council seek a local mural artist or team of artists to design, fabricate, and install a permanent mural within four site locations across the Northern Gateway community. The murals will be part of the Gateway Migration Project, whose goal is to exchange representative stories from community members across the neighborhoods of the Northern Gateway and to facilitate community-building through shared stores in creative and hands-on projects. Please read the RFP for more information on how you can be part of this!
The 2020 Census presents obstacles in the Northern Gateway community, as immigrant and low-income community members are less likely to fill out government surveys and questionnaires due to suspicions and concerns over privacy. As the home of a vulnerable community the Northern Gateway area needs a more targeted outreach approach for the Census due to its area challenges. Targeted outreach material with clean and easy to read design will be crucial for the Northern Gateway community. The Northern Gateway has recently been awarded a grant to conduct targeted Census outreach. As such, we seek a graphic designer to produce visually compelling print and digital designs for outreach and promotional marketing materials for the Census 2020 Count Committee. A key component of this project is to understand the targeted population of the Northern Gateway community and finding best ways to communicate and promote the importance of the Census, while also providing information materials (i.e. how-to-fill guides). For those interested please read information below:
