Give A Minute Cincinnati is open
for video submissions
Local art collaborative, Batres Gilvin, is proud to launch Give A Minute Cincinnati (GAMC) a community project supported by ArtWorks' Jump Start: Fueling Emerging Artists.

Give A Minute Cincinnati is a digital space where Greater Cincinnati community members can share creative knowledge with one another in the form of one-minute videos. GAMC will share these one-minute videos with the Greater Cincinnati community and beyond via Give a Minute Cincinnati’s website, on YouTube, and on Instagram. These shared videos will aim to spark creativity and will become a resource where Greater Cincinnati community members can learn from and share knowledge with their neighbors.

In partnership with ArtWorks, Give A Minute Cincinnati will provide open studio space equipped with filming & lighting equipment, general supplies, and assistance available to all participants upon request. Submissions will be accepted through October 23.

In addition, GAMC is proud to offer five $300 scholarships to be awarded to five local undergraduate fine art students. The awards will be given to the most outstanding one-minute videos aimed at sparking creativity and engaging the community. Submissions for the GAMC Scholarship will be open through October 2.

GAMC’s mission is to promote connectedness by bringing members of the Greater Cincinnati community together in an accessible way.
