Call for Art Submissions by Youth
August 6, 2009 § Leave a comment
Via Racialicious, a call for art submissions: Resisting Colonialism & Rebuilding Pathways to Hope. According to their flyer…
We are seeking: Submissions of artwork by youth reflecting: resistance to oppression, violence and all kinds of discrimination; the process of healing, and the building of hope.
What do I have to do? Submit your artwork for the exhibit. Then, on September 21st, participating artists will have an opportunity to talk about their work at the launching of this art exhibit. The exhibit will be followed by a screening of the documentary “Highway of Hope,” a documentary filmed and directed by Indigenous feminist activist Jessica Yee [also an awesome special correspondent at Racialicious] about the numerous disappearances and murders of Aboriginal women along Highway 16 in British Columbia.
Art Submissions: Must be able to hang on the wall and must be submitted by September 1st 2009. The artwork will be exhibited for two weeks and can be reclaimed by artists afterward. Please include a short bio, contact info, and the title if applicable. Submissions can be mailed, or artists can hand deliver their work to:
Centre for Women’s Studies in Education
252 Bloor Street West Unit 2-223
Toronto, On M5S 1V6
Contact the Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-978-2080.
I encourage anyone interested to submit their work!
