The Arts Covenant and Logo Design Contest

March 15, 2009 - 7:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Deadline: March 15, 2009
Because community is so central to an Arts Covenant, the Arts Covenant working group invites everyone’s involvement. To begin with, we’re asking you or your students to help design an Arts Covenant logo and tag line. Besides a design task, this is a chance to discover what covenant, community, culture and the arts mean.

Logo designs can be submitted in two categories: 18-and-under &
Adult. All Central New Yorkers are eligible. We’ll have prizes for the winner in each category:
! 18-and-under – $100 iPod card
! Adult category – two tickets to Syracuse Stage and two tickets to Syracuse Opera and two tickets to Syracuse Symphony
! Top three entries in each category will be posted on CNYSpeaks and
! The public will select the best in each category.
! One of the two winners will be chosen as the official Arts Covenant Logo.

The CNY Arts Covenant invites EVERYONE in our region to support the arts and culture of our community by making and keeping four simple art-based agreements a year.

Within the broad categories of the Arts Covenant, each person can choose to participate in his or her own way. Since the NYSCA Cultural Blueprints conference last fall, a working group of artists and arts allies, with the assistance of the Post-Standard’s Civic Engagement Editor, have been working to create this ARTS COVENANT in Central
New York.

An Arts Covenant acknowledges that arts and culture is essential to quality of life and a lively, creative community – in good times and bad. In its deepest sense a covenant is what creates community.
