ROE ROE ROE YOUR BUTT OUT

Roe Roe Roe… is The Bridge Initiative’s effort to amplify the voices of Arizona artists (and artists everywhere!) who are processing the impact of Roe vs Wade and its likely repeal on our lives and world. Cultivated through an open submission process overseen by Bridge core artists, we will continuously release these offerings through our digital platforms. We aim to reflect the current moment when we all, women, men, and gender non-conforming citizens, face a threat to our dominion over our own bodies, and recognize our very democracy is at stake.

Submission Details:

LENGTH:
2-4 Minutes

GENRE:
Stories, short plays, musings, songs, thoughts, ideas, sketches…Whatever you want, but it must me original material or fair use, and we must be able to audio record the piece (or you can audio record yourself, or maybe even make a video). Each piece selected(?) will be distributed on The Bridge Initiative’s digital platform.

CONTENT:
The Bridge Initiative supports a myriad of views and thoughts on all topics and subject matter, and we broadly supports self expressions. However, we will not accept materials that actively promote and support the dismantling of a woman’s agency (or anyone for that matter) over her physical and mental well-being.

FORMAT:
Please submit material as a PDF manuscript, mp3, mp4, .png, or .gif. All submissions can be uploaded to this Google Folder

RIGTHS:
