The Projecting All Voices initiative aims to explore what equity means within a 21st-century design and arts school and at art institutions across the nations.
Projecting All Voices, an initiative of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts supported by ASU Gammage, aims to support equity and inclusion in design and the arts so that our nation’s cultural life honors and represents the full creative diversity of our country’s population. Faculty, students, fellows and guests of the Projecting All Voices initiative research, design, prototype, implement and disseminate ideas and mechanisms for confronting field-level issues of equity in arts and culture. The initiative also supports artists and designers from underrepresented groups through scholarships, fellowships, mentorship and visiting artist residencies.
Funded in part by a grant from the Mellon Foundation, Projecting All Voices provides opportunities for designers and artists to advance ideas and projects that investigate identity, cultural heritage, power, race, policy, ability and/or place and community. Projecting All Voices also focuses on curricular change in design and arts colleges as well as civic and social practices in design and arts that create equitable communities. Projecting All Voices seeks transformation in educational and cultural institutions to enable the full expression of all creative voices.
The Projecting All Voices post-graduate fellows are artists from diverse communities. Through the program, which is funded by a grant from the Mellon Foundation, the fellows inform conversations about how educational and cultural institutions must change to prepare, support and advance the creative voices of a changing America through an equitable lens and framework of practice. They also work with communities underrepresented in the institutions, as that work relates to their own interests and creative work.
The application window is currently closed. 2019-20 application dates will be announced later in the spring semester. Questions? Contact Iris Medina: Iris.Medina@asu.edu

Her recent work has been largely concerned with models of power that exist globally, which involve an element that interrelates practices and legacies of colonialism. Aranibar-Fernandez’s work is exhibited nationally and internationally, including a solo exhibition at the National Museum of Art in Bolivia and the 2017 Kathmandu triennial in Nepal.
