What kind of event can I propose for co-sponsorship?
Co-sponsored events advance the IMC's mission to foster the creation and distribution of media and art that emphasizes underrepresented voices and perspectives and to promote empowerment and expression through media and arts education. We have had forums, live music performances, spoken word shows, dance performances, script readings, art workshops and more!
For questions about co-sponsorship, email [email protected].
Who can propose a co-sponsored event?

Host must take responsibility for:
