What is MIA?
Movement in Art (MIA) is a novel project from RISE Chattanooga and local artists that will amplify the voices of Chattanooga-area artists creating socially-conscious work. The project is open to all artists and media. In order to reflect the grassroots nature of social movements, the featured work will be chosen by community members and displayed on Chattanooga storefronts, billboards, and social media platforms. Honorable mentions will be selected to present on the MIA Instagram page. #MIACHA
The theme for this round is "IDENTITY: WHO ARE YOU?" In honor of Black History Month, Team RISE is challenging artists to present artwork that speaks to the many ways human beings walk through the world.

Interested artists will submit a single work under this theme to be eligible for selection and presentation.
