Public Safety Art


In response to the current health crisis, we held a Call for Public Safety Art in the spring. Our on-the-grounds-work revealed that vital public safety information has not been reaching every neighborhood equitably. Language barriers, lack of internet access, and structural inequality are among some factors barring vital communication and resources into communities who need it most.  Inspired by the United Nations Global Call Out to Creatives, PUAM (the public arts program of NSCDC) calls upon all Massachusetts based creatives to partake in a paid opportunity  to use their artistic powers of communication, empathy, and advocacy to develop Public Service Announcements (PSA) for primarily immigrant, non-English speaking, and low-income communities of color.
