Brief Summary of Proposal: My approach for my injustice is going to be an art piece. I wanted to make a visual project (because I never do) that has a lot of meaning to it and can convey a message to the audience clearly.
Who are you trying to impact?
I think my general audience is just going to be the people of Durango or anyone that sees the art piece. I’m trying to impact everyone, especially white people, because even though it’s possible for a minority to culturally appropriate another culture, it’s mostly done by white people because we have been the oppressors of many cultures and people in American for hundreds of years and cultural appropriation is apart of that.
Who are you pitching the proposal to? (i.e. who is the decision-maker?)
I could pitch this to Durango Arts Center so that it could be hung up for many different people to see in Durango. I could also try to hang it up in a coffee shop downtown or maybe even a restaurant. If neither of those work out I could hang it up in the Animas hallways.
Written Description of your Proposal: Visual Folks: If you are proposing an art piece, or blueprints for a piece of engineering, you only need to write an artist statement of sorts to briefly describe what you’re piece is and how you think it makes an impact. The piece that I’m proposing is going to be an art piece of two white girls standing somewhere and one is going to be wearing cornrows and the other is going to be wearing a headdress. There is going to be a speech bubble of them both saying “It’s fashion!”. I think it’s going to make an impact because it shows two people wearing something that they shouldn’t be wearing while trying to justify their actions.
Visual Folks Only: Draft/sketch of Proposal If you’re doing a visual piece, sketch it out! You don’t need to actually produce the final product, just sketch out what it would look like.
