ART IN ACTION!
Part of STUDY IN ACTION at Concordia University
CALLOUT FOR SUBMISSIONS
-> Contribute art work to the ART IN ACTION exhibition!
new deadline for submissions: January 19, 2012
ART IN ACTION is part of the Study In Action Undergraduate and Community Research Conference.
Study in Action is an undergraduate student & community conference on social and environmental justice designed to link students and community activism. The conference is a space for students to present research and develop greater knowledge of social and environmental issues and build ties with community organizations. This year’s conference will take place from March 2-4, 2012 on the downtown Concordia campus.
One relatively new part of Study In Action is ART IN ACTION, which allows artists and designers to contribute to creative expression on social and environment justice issues, via drawings, sculpture, performance, video, photography, paintings and other creative forms.
This year’s ART IN ACTION will include an exhibition at the STUDY IN ACTION conference itself, and will also aim to showcase exhibitions at other spaces on campus and in the community.
This year’s STUDY IN ACTION themes include:
* art and alternative media
* economics, austerity, and anti-capitalism
* environmental justice
* food sovereignty
* gender and feminism
* geopolitics and international solidarity
* health, bodily sovereignty and harm reduction
* indigenous sovereignty and de-colonization
* prisoner justice and policing
* public space, poverty and gentrification
* radical education and pedagogy
* sex and sexuality
[don’t hesitate to suggest other topics]
