pitch please summit_web copy.jpg

VAE is a community cultural arts organization. That means we work WITH our community to program the most impactful and relevant projects, exhibitions, programming, and events. We cannot do our best work without your involvement! PITCH, PLEASE! is a platform for you to present the ideas you’d like to see in our community. This open call-for-proposals that acts as an avenue for you to help plan a better future WITH us.

A suggestion that you’d like to see VAE incorporate into our existing work
An idea you’d like to do in collaboration with VAE
Something you’d like to see exist in our community, whether VAE is the right partner or not, we want to help (not to brag, but we have a lot of friends)!

Our team is here to help, filled with knowledge, and has access to resources like space, funding opportunities, and community partners. Don’t hesitate to bring your biggest, boldest, dream-project ideas to the table!

1. This is not a way for VAE to take credit for your ideas or your work, just a simple way to make our resources accessible to the community.
2. VAE does not exhibit or financially support work that co-opts the story of a community without representation from that community acting in a decision making role.

VAE’s gallery space is physically accessible and we strive to make the submission process accessible as well. We encourage anyone to enter our open call exhibitions. If you need any additional information or accommodations in order to submit a proposal, please email Kyle or call 919.828.7834 for assistance.
