Create



We invite artists, designers and architects to create a piece of art to represent one block of Manhattan.  This unique opportunity is open to the first 100 to sign up.

Guidelines
Artwork can be anything from a sculpture, sketch, painting or photography to jewelry, or clothing. Let your creative juices flow!

We challenge you to get inspired by Lesotho, making reference to the white, blue and green colors of its national flag, the traditional blankets or the famous Basotho hat into your design, or even re-interpreting the traditional Litema patterns that adorn Lesotho’s vernacular buildings.

Art piece cannot be larger than 30″ x 30″, must be less than 7″ wide and weigh less than 10 lbs for ease of transportation.

Submitting your artwork
Finished artwork must be sent to NY 1- 2 weeks before the event.

In addition to submitting the finished piece, you must also submit a photograph of the artwork to daniela@riseint.org by September 30, 2017.

The jury will use this photo to shortlist the 10 best art pieces that will feature in the event program. The winner will be announced at the event.
