The Cre8sian Project was founded as a way to give back to the community while empowering Asian women around the world by developing female superhero characters that envelop qualities of a strong, superhero-like woman: Determination, Concentration, Motivation, and Education. This brand is about recognizing diversity in the arts, emphasizing that representation matters, and empowering women in the arts and beyond!
The Cre8sian Project Scholarships, through Positively Arts (a 501c3 non profit) and in partnership with “In Her Purpose,” are open to female and female identifying high school and middle school students attending public, private, or home school with an interest in the arts, have some asian heritage, and live in Clark County. Students who are involved in any aspect of the arts, not just performance, are encouraged to apply. This can include writers, photographers, filmmakers, technical stage crew (carpentry, props, lighting, automation, audio, set design, stage managers), artists, graphic designers, directors, acrobats, singers, dancers, musicians, composers, arrangers, etc.
Interested students should submit:
- Your journey in the arts and why the arts are important to you
- Describe any short term or long term goals or plans you have (even if you do not plan to pursue a career in the arts)
- Talk about any volunteer or community work you have done in the past year and why it is meaningful to you
- Talk about a challenge you encountered, and how you overcame it
- How your Asian heritage has influenced your life
** You do not necessarily need to write lengthy answers to all of these questions if some do not apply to you as much as others, but please feel free to elaborate more on the ones that do.
***Essays must be submitted as PDF attachments, NOT shared google docs!! Improper submissions will not be considered!***
Students will be judged on their skills, initiative, involvement in their community, and dedication to their artform.
