Call for Submissions

Call for Art Submissions – ArtC and Sol Collective

Exhibition title: You Live Here

Submit artworks for a show about climate justice, to be held at Sol Collective. Dates of show: 4/07/15 – 4/30/15

What is the role of artists in the age of climate justice?

No issue can be separated from climate change – we live with its effects every single day. We know that climate change is fueled by an exploitative relationship between humans and nature. Because our anthropogenic imprint has been substantial on natural climate variability, it follows that we must highlight those who are taking action to change course!

What does climate justice look like in our shared communities?

It is imperative that we connect the complex social and ecological realities of our time and place, including recognizing the disproportionate impact of the climate crisis on marginalized communities. Our intent is to seek out intersectional dialogues where imperialism, neo-liberalism, sexism, racism, individual and collective consumption practices are seen in relation to climate change.

We are interested in any and all creative work. Before you submit, please read the guidelines below.

All work must be submitted by Midnight March 8, 2015. Please submit your work to: sacartc@gmail.com.

We look forward to viewing your submissions and connecting our stories through this act of solidarity!
