Trinity City Artwork and  Writing Contest

Two Mount Carmel Academy students were selected as winners in an artwork and writing contest sponsored by Trinity City Arts, a learning community of Louisiana artists, educators, and activists. The contest invited participants to read ”Trinity City #1,” an original graphic story, and choose a social change topic for inspiration: disability justice, climate justice, or community safety. Two of the top three writers chosen were MCA students. Emma Lapene addressed disability justice in “Who We Are,” and Vivian Bravo covered community safety in her piece “Safe Haven.”

Both honorees were awarded a $50 cash card and a one-hour mentoring session with a professional artist or writer. Additionally, all participants were able to attend a free virtual illustration class and writing class taught by Trinity City Artists.

Mat Schwarzman (Co-Director), Michele Brierre (Community Champion), and Keith Singleton (Creator of Trinity City Character "Marcus") visited MCA’s campus on January 29 to present Emma and Vivian with their awards. 

Trinity City Arts comprise Louisianans of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities engaging in social change through listening to and telling stories about our community's past, present, and future. Headquartered in New Orleans, they commission artists in all media to create works that stimulate and support their objectives.
