Special Message to Advocates + Organizers Re: CUP’s Open Call!

Special Message to Advocates + Organizers Re: CUP's Open Call!

The deadline for Public Access Design has been extended to April 20th, at 5pm EST. 

You can apply here! A few important details:

If you don’t have time to submit an application:
We know these are very trying and uncertain times, and want to make it as easy as possible for you to keep doing the work you’re doing. If you want to apply to Public Access Design, but submitting an application sounds like too much of a hurdle right now, schedule a call with CUP. We’ll talk through your proposed project topic and ask you a few questions about it, and put it in a format that our jury can easily review alongside applications submitted online. We’re happy to remove one barrier to getting important information out there in an accessible and meaningful way. Please email sucharitha@welcometocup.org to set up a phone call.

If you’re working on a COVID-related project:
We welcome any COVID-related projects, especially ones that will continue to be helpful to communities as we come out of the most dire moments of this crisis (for example: how this is affecting the rights of incarcerated people). The timeline for PAD is generally 4-6 months, so these projects would be ready for distribution by the end of the year. If that sounds like a good fit to you, reach out to us at the email above!

We hope you are all safe and supported during this time, and hope to hear from you soon.

Best,
the CUP Team
