Art and Creative Work

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

If a social imaginary is a term that’s understood as the set of values, attitudes, and practices (Charles Taylor, 2003) through which a particular group may imagine themselves, how might various climate change narratives and imaginaries be impacted by nostalgic desires for past practices and ways of being?

For this mixed media exhibition, we are looking for work that responds to or engages with the questions:

  • To what extent/how does nostalgia impact your ability/willingness to embrace new ways of being/acting/traveling/leisure or consumption at local, regional, or even global levels?
  • When does fond remembrance benefit or detract from our own sustainable development goals or the seventeen published United Nations Sustainable Development Goals?
  • How can we use research-creation to investigate and express climate change narratives and ideas through visual/creative arts engagement?

Please submit work, in response to the theme above, in the following forms:

2D visual arts that can be hung on a wall including photography (traditional or digital), drawing, printmaking, mixed media, digital art, and/or documentation of street art and social practice, and/or poetry, creative writing.

We regret that we are not able to accommodate video, 3D sculptures, or installations in the exhibition space.

Please submit your work for consideration by email on or before December 1, 2020.

  • Up to six images/short pieces of writing for consideration (submissions must be finished, work in progress will not be considered).
  • Please submit high-resolution JPG images, Word/PDF files (for written submissions). Please do not send image files over 10MB each.
  • Your name along with the title of each piece, date, and dimensions a 100 (approximately) statement about how your work relates to the theme.
