Attention Womxn artists: Call for submissions!
Project Title: Each for Equal (Emerging at Any Age – Recognizing Womxn Artists)
March 8th, International Women’s Day 2020 campaign theme is #EachforEqual
Let’s create a gender-equal world in which we are all responsible for our own thoughts and actions. We need to challenge stereotypes, broaden perceptions, and change situations. An equal world is an enabled world.
Women’s equality can’t wait. It’s going to take everyone to think and be inclusive – all the time, everywhere. So, let’s all get ready to strike the #EachforEqual pose – and do everything we can to help forge women’s equality worldwide.
Brief Summary of Project:
In celebration of International Womxn’s Day 2020, Each for Equal will profile eight emerging and professional womxn artists of any age from Newfoundland and Labrador. The juried show will open in the Eastern Edge rOGUE Gallery March 8th weekend and will continue for three weeks. A Jury will select participants from their submissions.
This project will also include a professional development component. Over the course of two months (February-March), the selected artists will have the opportunity to participate in four 3 hour workshops. Three established womxn artists will be invited to speak about their art journey, their professional evolution, and to discuss being a professional artist in today’s art market. The final session will explore managing a professional art based small business.
This is an intergenerational show that will celebrate and create space for womxn artists of any age – what we have to say, what we have to show and what we want others to know about us.
