1. How is your project idea collaborative? How does it uplift and/or present the work of other artists, creative thinkers, and cultural producers?
2. How is your project idea research-driven, experimental, and imaginative? How does it expand your creative practice?
3. How will your project benefit your community (of peers, colleagues, audience, etc.)? If you are not living in DC, why does it make sense to present it in DC? (For example, is your project idea relevant to communities in DC, challenging DC’s political mythology, or contextualizing a history specific to DC?)
