MSSA 127th Annual Training Conference & Expo - Call for Artists

Deadline for Submission September 17, 2019

The Minnesota Social Service Association (MSSA) is excited to announce that we are transitioning to a call for artists to design and create artwork to be a graphic theme for our 2020 Annual Conference. MSSA is excited to provide an opportunity for artists to showcase their talents in support of our 127th Annual Training Conference & Expo—Shaping the Future Together in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 

Our goal is to highlight an artist that has been positively impacted by the Health and Human Services system. Our target audience includes:

  • Artists touched by the health and human service system.

  • Artists whose work aligns with MSSA’s core beliefs and values—of social responsibility, equity and inclusion.

  • Artists that are local to Minnesota and neighboring states.

The selected artist will receive a stipend of $750 for the use of their artwork in promotional materials for the 2020 Annual Conference. Artists may also receive a free exhibit table space at our conference, complimentary registration at our conference, and a 1-year membership to MSSA. The image will be published on MSSA’s website, in emails, and on printed materials (reaching thousands) and will be the visual centerpiece for the conference.
