Call for submissions:

New York City is an incomparable beauty yet brimming with brokenness. It’s also a city of extremes: of joy and sorrow, wealth and poverty, exhilaration and exhaustion. Life here is costly. Physically, mentally, emotionally, and--especially--spiritually, everyday drains a little bit of us. As women of faith in New York City, how does our hope in Christ define the ways we relate here? How can we be present in the tensions of the raw now and the ultimate future? And how do we reconcile our angst in a way that allows us to serve our city?

We invite local female artists to submit 1 - 4 pieces digitally that reflect this theme of the Biblical hope. More details below:
