Hope Rovelto
award
$5,485 Awarded

Hope Rovelto will travel around Maine with her bicycle-powered screen printing studio to conduct live, on-site t-shirt printing for political causes. This is a mobile unit that she designed herself, which she can ride or drive to any community protest, rally, or other community events inside or outside. Using social media to find events, Rovelto will print shirts for causes ranging from meetings at Portland City Hall and protests at the State building in Augusta to gun control rallies at local high schools. In light of the current political climate, the midterms make 2019 a very important year to motivate people to think about the issues that affect them. The jury awarded Hope an additional $485 in travel funds to bring Giving Voice to rural communities throughout Maine.

Low ticket alert: Sara Juli’s Burnt-Out Wife solo performance has been awarded a prestigious National Dance Project award, grab the final tickets available for the show’s world premiere at SPACE for the October 19th performance at 9pm.
