Open Call for Artists “Your Art Your Reflections: Multiculturalism, Diversity and Anti-Racism”
Asian Impact Society, with the support of Exhibition sponsor Place des Art, seeks submissions for “Your Art Your Reflections: Multiculturalism, Diversity and Anti-Racism” art exhibition and contest. Deadline for Submissions is June 1, 2023.
This exhibition and contest will be presented in the Atrium at Place Des Arts from September 8 to November 9, 2023 and viewable online from September 15, 2023 to November 9, 2023.
This year’s theme is multiculturalism, diversity and anti-racism. Artwork submitted should address at least one of these themes.
For example, the artwork could be a depiction of the artist’s personal story, their interpretation of what these themes mean, a reflection of the history of these themes in our society, or a message to the viewing public. It is up to the artist.
Through this exhibition, our goal is to educate the viewing public on why multiculturalism and diversity is important and why there is no place for racism in our communities. Education through the arts is one of the many steps we can take to building an anti-racist, diversity-embracing, multicultural society where we can all learn from each other and build stronger communities.
