Inspired by Harvey Milk’s pioneering “Hope” speech, the Give ‘Em Hope Awards will provide five artists with $1,500 each to support an artistic project that focuses on the themes of hope. Winners will also have their work featured on SFGMC TV, a free online platform showcasing exciting performances, dynamic interviews, singer spotlights, and more.
The Give ‘Em Hope Awards are designed to serve under-resourced and diverse communities and open to artists up to the age of 25. The artistic medium may be any expression of hope:
Performing Arts – vocal or instrumental music, dance, theater;
Visual Arts – painting, drawing, sculpture, film;
Literature & Film – poetry, prose, drama, performance art.
