The Wing Luke Museum seeks professional artist and writer for story of Japanese American resisters.
Calling all writers and artists! The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience is launching a graphic novel project, and they're looking for a professional artist and writer to help make it happen. The project, entitled Inspiring Future Generations: Challenging the Forced Incarceration through Acts of Resistance, shares the history and significance of the Japanese American Resisters story.
The Wing is working with community stakeholders to develop content for a graphic novel, stand-alone chapter and curriculum guide, which will be distributed to schools and libraries and through the museum. An animated short produced by the Seattle Channel will also be made based on the stand-alone chapter.
This project is the second in a series of graphic novels. The first book Fighting for America: Nisei Soldiers by Lawrence Matsuda and Matt Sasaki, told the story of six World War II Japanese American military veterans.
Required materials for the submission deadline must be received no later than 4:30pm on Tuesday, January 3, 2017. For further information about the project, including the submission process, selection criteria and scope of work, view the two requests for qualifications below.
