New Client Announcement: MOZAIK

The Wakeman Agency has been engaged by MOZAIK Philanthropy, a national foundation committed to democratizing philanthropy, to get the word out to artists about an exciting new opportunity. The MOZAIK Future Art Awards, created to keep people connected to the essential power of art during this period of social distancing, is an inclusive online competition inviting artists to share a work that can shed light on the COVID-19 pandemic. Wakeman will be focusing on encouraging people of color, LGBTQ people, women and other underrepresented artists to submit their art for the competition, by engaging our extensive media contacts in these communities. We will also be highlighting MOZAIK’s commitment to flow funding as a model for diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—concepts that are of great interest to us as a social change agency. The second phase of the media campaign will showcase winners of the contest via, who will receive cash prizes and have their work featured in a virtual exhibition, celebrating the potential of art to reimagine the future. This project is a powerful way to reaffirm the deep impact of art as a force for communication, unity and healing, in the face of adversity.
