Request for Artists - Logo Design

Project Overview

California Syringe Exchange Programs (CASEP) Coalition is a mutual-aid and advocacy network of syringe services providers and participants who work collectively to build strong harm reduction programs and who organize to reduce the harms of the racialized war on drugs and drug use at the individual and community level. CASEP is in search of an artist to contribute creative art and design skills to a project with a budget not to exceed $5,000.


Artists local to California, LGBTQ+, people of color, and people with lived experience in drug use and sex work are strongly encouraged to submit proposals.
